OH. MY. GOSH. These potatoes. These SLOW COOKER GARLIC BUTTER MASHED POTATOES. I can’t. Let me gather myself because I’m about to butter this recipe up with compliments, both literally and figuratively! :) Thanksgiving wouldn’t be complete without amazing mashed potatoes, and this recipe is just the one you need.

Firstly, it’s made in a crockpot. Your life should be as easy as possible while cooking everything from turkey to cranberry sauce. The more slow cooker recipes the better…am I right? This special version of a classic is oh so creamy and cooked with whole garlic to soak up all the flavor possible. MMMMM!! I’m in love.

Ingredients

  • 3 pounds Yukon Gold potatoes, peeled & chopped
  • 1-2 bulbs garlic, the top ¼ cut off
  • ¼ cup chicken broth
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper, optional
  • 4 tablespoons butter, unsalted
  • ¼-½ cup milk
  • Garnish: fresh chopped chives or parsley, extra butter

Instructions

  1. Spray a slow-cooker with cooking spray and set it to HIGH heat.
  2. Peel and cut the potatoes into 1-inch cubes. Rinse the potatoes under cold water (this removes some of the starch). Transfer the potatoes to the slow-cooker and nestle the garlic on top of the potatoes. Drizzle the chicken broth on top and sprinkle the potatoes with salt and pepper.
  3. Cook on HIGH 2-3 hours or on LOW 3-4 hours or until potatoes are tender.
  4. Remove and mash the garlic. Add the garlic and butter to the potatoes and mash the potatoes until smooth. Try not to over mix the potatoes or they will turn gummy. Mix in the milk to the desired consistency.
  5. Garnish with chopped chives or parsley and pats of butter.
  6. Enjoy!

Do you roast the garlic before adding it to the slow Cooker? Excited to make thEse for thanksgiving!
    Becky Hardin
    Hi Mollie! Great question. You can put the garlic in raw and it will roast in the slow cooker. Hope you love the recipe!

I was wondering if once the timer is done. Can I leave the cover on and Leave it on warm for a few hours before I can serve it or make it closer to dinner time. Can I use a potato ricer or is a hand masher best? Thank you so much.
    Becky Hardin
    For the time, that should definitely work. Just stir every so often to keep it nice and fresh. For the masher question, its all about consistency. We like ours with a masher but if you like the finer ricer feel/taste, go for it!! Hope you love the recipe and have a fab Thanksgiving :)
