I’m excited to try this, I never have enough stove/oven space for everything on Turkey Day, so it’ll be nice to have something in the crock pot and out of the way! I’ve never had mashed potatoes with cream cheese and or sour cream, how terrible would I wreck this recipe if I omitted them? I would hate to experiment on such an important day!

Looks/sounds yummy!! Thank you!! This is a perfect recipe for Holiday Mashed Potatoes.
Personally, my favorite potatoes are Yukon Gold…not to take away from the red ones…I like them, too. The Gold’s have a wee bit of a smoother texture and sweeter taste.
I’ll be following you on Pinterest! 😀

Do you bring the water to a boil before putting the potatoes in? Or put the potatoes and water in at the same time and bring to a boil?

I make mine completely in the crock pot. I put the 5lb potatoes in the crock the night before and they cook all night. (fills to over-brimming a 6 qt but they cook down) With garlic and 1 can chicken broth adn water to cover as broth. Pour off and reserve liquid, when time to eat. Pour in a pint of heavy cream, 1 stick of butter and blend away with stick blender. Add back liquid till get the creaminess you like. Takes on a roasted like twice baked potatoes.
