Crockpot Mashed Potatoes
Potatoes are actually cooked and mashed out of the crockpot, then cooked for a couple of hours to blend the flavors. This recipe for Crockpot Mashed Potatoes is perfect for the holidays because there's no last minute preparation.

Prep Time: 25 minutes

Cook Time: 3 hours

Total Time: 3 hours, 25 minutes

Yield: Serves 8-10


  • 5 lbs. red potatoes, cut into chunks (peeled if you like)
  • 1 Tbsp. minced garlic
  • 2 cubes chicken bouillon
  • 8 oz. container sour cream
  • 8 oz. pkg. cream cheese, softened
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • salt and pepper to taste


Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add potatoes, garlic and chicken bouillon cubes. Cook potatoes until tender but still firm, about 15 minutes. Drain, reserving a little of the cooking water.

Mash potatoes with sour cream and cream cheese, adding reserved cooking water to reach desired consistency. Transfer to a 4 quart crockpot, cover, and cook on low for 2 to 3 hours. Just before serving, stir in butter and season with salt and pepper to taste.

Excellent Potatoes! Was the hit of a kindergarten Thanksgiving Feast. Great for kids and adults. I still receive compliments on these potatoes three years later! Great way to manage serving mashed potatoes with several other dishes!
