Crock-Pot Mashed Potatoes

September 13, 2016

Without a doubt, the tastiest & healthiest way to cook mashed potatoes. Give this a try & you may never go back to cooking mashed potatoes any other way! For a real treat, make my Cauliflower Mashed Potatoes (see recipe in the Potatoes category) which brings a whole new level of flavor & even more nutrients to mashed potatoes.

Yield: Approximately 10 - 1 cup servings

Ingredients

5 lbs organic russet potatoes peeled & rinsed in cold water. Cut in half lengthwise, cut in half lengthwise again, then cut into fairly evenly sized cubes

2 cups organic chicken or vegetable broth

5 Tblsp butter, cut into small pieces

1/2 cup organic milk or plain, unsweetened almond milk (may need more for thinning)

1 cup sour cream or plain Greek yogurt (or 1/2 cup of each)

1/8 cup Roasted Garlic cloves, mashed with a fork or 2 to 3 tsp finely minced fresh garlic (see Roasted Garlic recipe in the Herbs, Spices & Seasonings category)

1 to 2 tsp kosher or sea salt (see Tip# 1)

Fresh ground black pepper, 12 pepper mill turns or to taste

Optional for garnish: chopped fresh chives or parsley or substitute dried of either one

Directions

1 Peel & rinse potatoes in cold water. Cut in half lengthwise, then cut in half lengthwise again, then cut into fairly evenly sized cubes.

2 Arrange potatoes in a 7 quart crock-pot. Pour broth all over potatoes & top with pieces of butter.

3 Cook on high for 4 hours or until potatoes are tender & most of the liquid is absorbed. Give potatoes a quick stir during cooking, after 2 & 3 hrs.

4 When potatoes are done; turn off crock-pot, uncover, stir & let sit 10 - 20 minutes allowing any remaining liquid to fully absorb into the potatoes.

5 Add milk, sour cream, garlic, salt & pepper.

6 Mash until the consistency is to your liking & give it a good stirring to make sure all the ingredients are well combined. If too thick, add more milk sparingly. If not thick enough, set crock-pot to warm & heat uncovered, stirring occasionally, until it's the thickness you desire.

7 Cover & set crock-pot to warm to serve later or serve now & if using, garnish individual servings.

Tips & Suggestions

1 Regarding salt; keep in mind that the chicken broth & Roasted Garlic add a salty taste... therefore be sure to taste the finished potatoes before adding more salt.

2 If you're cooking this ahead of time to freeze or if you have leftovers:
a. Let potatoes cool in crock-pot to room temperature.
b. Freeze in airtight containers, 1 cup per person is a general rule of thumb for serving size.
c. If you're planning to use within 1 to 2 days, store container(s) in the refrigerator.

  1. We have 18 adults and three children coming for the holidays. I’m thinking 10 lbs of potatoes would be better but then I’d have to make them in two crockpots?

  2. This is such a great idea for a potluck I will be attending. I will sub coconut milk, coconut oil and apple cider vinegar for the dairy, but the roasted garlic is inspired and will really make this a wonderful contribution. Yum!
