Crock Pot Mashed Potatoes Recipe

Crock Pot Mashed Potatoes Recipe

There are just some things in life that you do because they’re easier like making mashed potatoes in the crock pot. Sure you could boil in a pan and do it the traditional way but when you’ve got no stove top space as you’re making a big meal then this Crock Pot Mashed Potatoes Recipe is perfect!  I love mine covered in cheese and lots of garlicy bits in there but you can serve them as you like!

We have soccer twice a week right now and if I don’t prep something ahead of time we all walk through the door at 6.45pm starving. So a recipe like this is perfect for me as it’s ready as soon as we get home. All I do is smash and serve!
