The taste of this crock pot mashed potatoes was just as good, if not BETTER, than my whipped mashed potatoes in my kitchen aid mixer. In the crock pot, the potatoes got perfectly warm and soft and then the butter belted and seasoning took well to the potatoes. It was the perfect treat for a side of chicken or steak. When I mashed these, I made sure to leave some parts chunky. It was absolutely delicious!
Check out what our friends over at Little Spice Jar had to say about these:
“Learn how to make roasted garlic mashed potatoes in the slow cooker. This recipe is quick and easy and makes the creamiest mashed potatoes that are flavored with fresh herbs right in the crockpot!”
Do not skip out on learning this! She is right, they are quick and easy, and the flavor does not compare to the other’s out there!
2 lbs. Red potatoes, cut into 1 ½ inch pieces
1 teaspoon fresh thyme
1 head roasted garlic (12-15 cloves) (see notes)
¼ cup (4 tablespoons) Land O’ Lakes salted butter
1 ½ teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon black pepper
½ cup Swanson vegetable or chicken broth
⅓-½ cup Land O’ Lakesheavy cream (to preference)
1 tablespoon chopped parsley
Spray the inside of a three quart slow cooker with cooking spray. Add the potatoes, thyme, roasted garlic cloves, butter, salt, pepper, and chicken broth. Cover and allow the slow cooker to cook for 4-5 hours on high or 7-8 hours on the low setting.
Add the heavy cream to preference. Start with ⅓ cup and if you want the potatoes to be more creamy, add the full ½ cup. [b]Keep in mind, the heavy cream can be replaced with regular milk but it won’t make the mashed potatoes creamy and rich.[/b] Use a hand mixer to blend the potatoes or a potato masher can be used for a more rustic mashed potato. Careful when blending, mix on the slow speed and don’t let the blades get too close to the base of the crockpot. Season with additional salt and pepper to taste. Sprinkle the parsley and fold before serving.
