Crockpot Mashed Potatoes

I love crockpot mashed potatoes.  They take a lot less work, and no fussing, watching, or water.  These are how I like to make them, and my family likes them too.  They aren't as fluffy as regular mashed potatoes, but the ease makes up for that small flaw in my opinion.  We give these a perfect 10, and for 1/6 of this recipe the calories are between 170 and 180.

6 yukon gold potatoes, chopped (I don't like russets, won't ever use them)
1 T olive oil
1 t salt
4 t minced garlic
rosemary or thyme
1 T butter
1/8 c cream
1/4 c milk

Place chopped potatoes, olive oil, garlic, salt and rosemary or thyme in slow cooker.  Mix and cook on low 4 hours.  Make sure potatoes are cooked through, then add butter, cream and milk, and any other spices you desire.  Whip, mash, however you like to beat the potatoes up ;).  Serve.


  1. Do you add any water to the crockpot with the potatoes and seasonings?

    1. Nope, no water needed, just be sure not to overcook them, they can get tough. The olive oil is enough.

  2. Wow! This is the only way to cook them. So easy!
