Crockpot Mashed Potatoes
These scrumptious Crockpot Mashed Potatoes are so easy to make with half the effort, but still loaded with tons of flavor! The easiest, creamiest and cheesiest mashed potatoes you will ever make.
I love the idea of making mashed potatoes in a Crockpot, especially for entertaining guests. When time and space are of the essence, it’s nice to just toss all the ingredients into the Crockpot and let it do all the work.
We love our mashed potatoes in this house! I’ve made them so many different ways before. With just milk and butter, with cream cheese, sometimes I even add a raw egg in it. The bottom line is: the creamier and cheesier they are, the better. As you know, I am a big fan of mashed potatoes. I’ll serve them for a casual dinner with my hubby, or for guests on a special occasion. These are some of my favorite meals to enjoy with mashed potatoes: pork or chicken schnitzel, roasted, Cornish hens, roast turkey, prime rib roast, baked honey garlic chicken, stout meatballs with bbq sauce, chicken and mushrooms in creamy dill sauce. If you aren’t planning on using up your leftovers for something like this easy Skillet Shepherd’s Pie or these Cheesy Mashed Potatoes, you can definitely enjoy them all on their own. Your leftover mashed potatoes will last 3-5 days in an airtight container in the fridge.
