Crockpot Smashed Potatoes

The more crockpots the better! This All-In-The-Crockpot Easter dinner (with the exception of the salad) is so simple and mouthwatering. You do need five crockpots for this dinner, but you should really have at least two on hand at all times. Borrow three, or buy a couple of new models. There are even crockpots that have three crock in one base that make serving buffet-style much easier. If you entertain a lot, think about getting one.

Since almost everything in this menu is warm, I did have to add a green salad. This one is a favorite because it's fresh, crunchy, delicious, and bright.

Enjoy this easy dinner with family and friends.

All-In-The-Crockpot Easter Dinner

  • Artichoke Spinach Dip
    This classic dip is made easy in the crockpot. Serve it with water crackers and little knives to spread the dip. It's rich and creamy and so good.
  • Crockpot Garlic Smashed Potatoes
    This easy recipe use lots of garlic, small red potatoes, and cream cheese to make a delicious side dish. You can mash the potatoes completely if you'd like (peel them before adding them to the crockpot) but I like a bit of texture.
  • Crockpot Pineapple Glazed Ham
    Any glazed ham is going to be good, but this recipe, which adds pineapple to the mix, is really delicious. You can use a regular cooked ham or a spiral sliced ham; it's up to you.
  • Green Bean Casserole
    The classic holiday green bean casserole is updated with Alfredo sauce and the crockpot. This rich and creamy dish is very special.
  • Endive Pea Avocado Salad
    This fresh and beautiful salad adds great flavor and color to the menu, along with a welcome temperature contrast. Add the avocados just before you're ready to serve.
  • Crockpot Turtle Cake
    Serve this meltingly delicious cake with some ice cream for contrast. If you have a new crockpot, be sure to check it at the earliest time so it doesn't burn.
