It isn’t a holiday, specifically Thanksgiving, without mashed potatoes. These Slow Cooker Mashed Potatoes with Garlic Herb Infused Butter takes my favorite side dish to another level.
I love, love, love these mashed potatoes.
And I love making them in the slow cooker.
Not only does it free up space on the stove, it’s easy to chop potatoes, add water, and forget about them until dinner time.
The herb infused butter makes these mashed potatoes special, and fresh.
I chop 7 russet potatoes (or about 5 lbs), add 1 cup of water, and cook in the slow cooker for 4 hours on HIGH. After getting the turkey in the oven, it’s the second dish I prepare.
And… if you’re using an Instant Pot, this recipe converts. Simply place the chopped potatoes in the Instant Pot (affiliate link), cover with water (about 4 cups), and cook on the steam setting for 12 minutes. Drain and continue with the recipe below.Print
