Slow Cooker Mashed Potatoes



3 lbs. potatoes (I used a mix of red and russets but either is fine.)

4 teaspoons minced garlic OR 2 teaspoons garlic powder

1 ½ cups milk

4 Tablespoons unsalted butter

Salt and Pepper to taste

Any other seasonings

Spray a 5 quart (or larger) slow cooker with non-stick spray. Cut potatoes in chunks—I don’t peel mine but you can if you don’t like the peelings. Place potatoes in slow cooker and add ¾ cup of milk, garlic, and butter. Cook on low for 4-6 hours or until potatoes are soft. Mash with potato masher or electric mixer and add remaining milk as needed. Add salt and pepper as desired.

*If you want to cook potatoes on high for a shorter amount of time, replace the ¾ cup milk with ¾ cup chicken stock at the beginning.

Sour cream, half-and-half, or evaporated milk can be used in place of half of the milk also.

**I added French fry seasoning to mine instead of the salt!
