HOW TO MAKE SLOW COOKER MASHED POTATOES

Making Slow Cooker Mashed Potatoes is super simple. The beauty of the slow cooker method is that you won’t have to boil a single drop of water.

  • Just wash and peel the potatoes. I used Russet potatoes for this recipe to make very light and fluffy mashed potatoes.
  • Cut the potatoes into 1/2 inch cubes and put them in the Slow Cooker. Set the cooker to high and cook 3 – 4 hours until fork tender. Mash or use a hand mixer to mash the potatoes and add the milk to make the mashed potatoes ultra creamy. Salt and pepper to taste.

WHICH POTATOES ARE BEST FOR MASHING?

For the best mashed potatoes, whether boiling or slow cooking, Choose higher starch potatoes. These are the Russets or Yukon golds which will make the fluffiest, smoothest, and most flavorful mash. Waxy potatoes like red or white varieties, require more mashing to become creamy, which could lead to “potato paste, instead of light and delicious mashed potatoes.
