We love Slow Cooker Mashed Potatoes. I’ve been making mine this way for eons. Which just goes to show I’m old as dirt. It’s okay, I’m good with it. With age comes wisdom. Or so they say. The jury is still out on that. Old also equals forgetfulness right.
This particular recipe uses the low setting on your slow cooker. You can use the high setting if you like. Personally I like cooking on them on the low setting because it’s more conducive with work hours. Who works for 4 hours? Not this girl!
Another thing that sets this recipe apart is I actually drain my potatoes. Liquid should be removed when cooking potatoes. No one wants runny mashed potatoes. Yes, you will have to wash a colander, but it’s completely worth it for perfect texture.
I really wanted to share my easy recipe for Spatchcocked Turkey, and Slow Cooker Garlic Mashed Potatoes this year because I want people to know holidays do not need to be stressful, or difficult. Holidays should be fun and enjoyable, not work.
To me that is what Thanksgiving is all about. Family! With a capital F (giggles!)!! Thanksgiving is a time to embrace the people in your life and be grateful for that weird little tribe giggling and arguing in your living room is ALL yours.
My goal here is to show you that making easy, delicious Thanksgiving recipes frees up time to spend with those weirdos in your living room. Instead of being stuck in the kitchen all day, you get to be part of the madness. Not working your butt off.
So make these Slow Cooker Garlic Mashed Potatoes with my Spatchcocked Turkey this Thanksgiving. Embrace your inner lazy cook. Your life will never be the same. Once you realize cooking can be easy it opens a whole new world….
