Slow Cooker Rustic Garlic Mashed Potatoes

  • Cooking Time:

    7 hours on Low or 4 hours on High
  • Servings:

    6-8

Ingredients

2 lbs. Small Potatoes (I like red potatoes), washed and unpeeled
1/4 c. Water or Chicken Broth
3 T. Unsalted Butter, cut into pieces
1 Bay Leaf
1 tsp. Garlic Powder
1 tsp. Salt
1/2 tsp. White Pepper
1 c. Half & Half, warmed

Slow Cooker Rustic Garlic Mashed Potatoes are so EASY and super tasty! (Yes, you can make the entire recipe in the slow cooker!) I make these with many meals, and always during the holidays!

  1. Combine all ingredients except half and half in a single layer of an oval slow cooker.
  2. Cover and Crock on LOW for 7 hours or on High for 4 hours.
  3. Remove Bay Leaf and discard.
  4. Add 1/2 c. Half & Half to the potatoes in the slow cooker.
  5. Mash potatoes with potato masher, adding as much of the remaining milk as needed. DO NOT OVER MASH!
  6. Taste & add more salt & pepper, if desired.

Happy Crocking!

Can I peel if I wish ? I am afraid if I don’t peel it will look messy with the peel in with the potatoes.

Comment please.

Hi! Love your blog & recipe ideas. Definitely going to try this one. Also, a msg for Carol: Our family LOVES garlic mashed potatoes. I use new red potatoes that don’te need to be peeled, just cut away any objectionable bits. The skins are tender enough to leave on while cooking. Kinda looks like you addes finely chopped bacon! Yummy!!

How many people would you say this feeds after it cooked? I have about 10 people coming for dinner, and wondering if I should double the recipe or not.

I am needing to take these to work for a lunch. If I put them in my slow cooker early in the morning and have to have it unplugged for an hour during the commute, how will it effect the receipe?

I make 5 #’s for 4 people and never have leftovers. I peel them but not with a peeler, just a knife so I know I don’t boil %#. We love potatoes! Going to try this next time I’m making them.

How garlic flavored are they? We love EXTRA garlic flavor so I may add some more garlic powder and maybe a clove or two of minced garlic, but don’t want to if the garlic taste is already strong enough.

Hi, I would like to try this for Thanksgiving, however, I’m not a fan of garlic powder. Any suggestions for using whole or minced garlic gloves? Thanks!

I prefer fresh garlic, too. Any suggestions for how much minced garlic to substitute for the garlic powder?

If I have to double the recipe to accomodate 10 guests, do I need to add more time too?

I tried this recipe tonight as a trial run for Thanksgiving–LOVED it. The only question I have is what kind of potatoes did you use? I used Eastern tonight, but they actually turned a brownish color when I mashed them, which I’m guessing is because of the skins? I’m sure I could peel them for a lighter appearance, but I thought I would ask first because I enjoyed the taste with skins, as well as the simplicity of not having to peel them. Thanks!

I don’t know what I did wrong, or if it was the choice of Eastern, but it was the color of cardboard, LOL. It didn’t look pretty, but it was still tasty. I bought Yukon Gold for Thanksgiving; maybe I’ll peel half of what I plan to crock, leave only some skins.

I am going to make these for Thanksgiving but will peel as I don’t think my kids will eat with the peels on! Not sure if it was answered but I’m assuming you mash in the crockpot?

If I want to make 5lbs… Do I really just multiply the ingredients by 2.5? It seems like a lot of water and milk, for instance.

I made this tonight and my potatoes came out light brown – it wasn’t good at all. Perhaps I did something wrong. Not sure how I messed up since the recipe is pretty straight forward.

I am going to try this with sweet potatoes. I’ll leave out the garlic and add cinnamon, nutmeg and sugar.

Thank you Crock Pot Girl for this. Question: So throw everything in the crock, let it sit for 7 hours, then mash it all when its done, while it is still in the crock? What if it gets ready before the 7 hours? Sorry, new at this.

Milk is not listed in the ingredient list from what I can see but yet it is mentioned in the directions. How much milk is used?
