With Thanksgiving less than a month away, I thought I better share a few of my favorite sides. Mashed potatoes are pretty much my all time favorite side dish. Top them with some homemade gravy and I am in heaven. These make ahead mashed potatoes in the slow cooker have been a Thanksgiving life saver. You can start them a few hours before guests arrive and have them nice and hot when the food is ready to serve.

MY OTHER RECIPES

These slow cooker mashed potatoes start out with just a few simple ingredients: potatoes, broth, butter, salt & pepper. The best part about this recipe is you don’t need to pre-boil the potatoes. They will cook right in the slow cooker. Then when they are nice and tender you can mix in all the ingredients that make mashed potatoes great, such as butter and cream. My grandma always told me that was a must!

These slow cooker mashed potatoes really are SO easy to make and will free up more space on the stove top when you’re down to crunch time. You can also turn them on the warm setting until you’re ready to serve them.

The thing I love most about this recipe is that you can easily adapt it to your own taste buds. If you love garlic, feel free to add in a 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder or minced garlic before you cook the potatoes. You can also leave the skins on if you prefer (less work), but we prefer to peel the potatoes.
