Crock Pot Mashed Potatoes

Good Eats

Oh my goodness, I will never make mashed potatoes any other way than the crock pot mashed potatoes recipe below.

Cooking big meals like Thanksgiving really takes up my whole kitchen and of course, the stovetop is full all day. A few years ago, I figured there had to be a way to enlist some of my other appliances to get the job done. My crockpot has been a long-time favorite for stews, chili, and soups but now it is also my go-to for the best-mashed potatoes. Diced Russet potatoes are simmered in the slow cooker, then mashed with butter and cream cheese which I know is not super healthy so I don’t think you make these all the time but for holidays, they are a must in our house. I like to add fresh parsley or chopped chives too.

INGREDIENTS

  • 5 pounds Russet potatoes peeled and cut into 1 inch pieces
  • 3 cups chicken broth
  • 1/2 cup butter cut into slices
  • 8 ounces cream cheese softened and cut into cubes
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 2 tablespoons chopped parsley

INSTRUCTIONS for Crock Pot Mashed Potatoes

Place the potatoes and chicken broth in a crock pot.

Cover the crock pot and cook on high for 4 hours or low for 6-8 hours, until potatoes are tender.

Drain the broth from the crock pot.

Add the butter, cream cheese, salt, pepper and heavy cream to the slow cooker. Use a potato masher to mash the potatoes until they’re smooth and creamy.

Sprinkle with parsley, then serve.
