You guys. Cheesy garlic slow cooker mashed potatoes. Need I say more?
I’m not going to lie, when I first heard of slow cooker mashed potatoes I legit scoffed, as in “pshhhh ridiculous, just make them in a regular pot like a regular person”. Lo and behold, last Thanksgiving, everything was ready to go except the mashed potatoes. We all sat around staring at the food waiting for them to finish! I promised myself then and there I was going to look into slow cooker mashed potatoes for next year.
Well! Not only did I make slow cooker mashed potatoes, I made cheesy garlic slow cooker mashed potatoes and I am fully prepared to literally eat my words. You seriously just throw the potatoes and some milkin the slow cooker in the morning, let it go for hours, and then add the rest of the ingredients at end. Mash it all together (or use a hand mixer for extra creaminess) and done! After that you can even set the cooker to warm and forget about it until dinner time.
It amazes me. HOW had I never thought about this before? And isn't this like the third time something like this has happened? "I don't doooo smoothies", "ew quinoa", and "pshhhhh slow cooker mashed potatoes". Here's hoping that I've finally learned my lesson ????.
Anyhoo, make your lives super easy this Thanksgiving; throw your potatoes in the slow cooker and forget about them! But definitely don't forget about all that cheesy goodness. Oh and garlic. I for one, am never going back to the old ways of stove top taters. Slow cooker for the win!Print
