Crockpot Mash Potatoes

This weekend was my family Christmas party!  My mom had asked for me to bring mash potatoes. We have about 40 people at our family Christmas so needless to say I was a little scared about how to do mash potatoes for that many.

I started out by looking online for how to keep the potatoes from drying out in the crockpot. Then I ended up stumbled on to recipes about how to do mash potatoes in the crockpot from start to finish. Here is what I came up with!


10lbs potatoes

1 cup butter, cut into cubes (I used salted)

2 cloves garlic, minced

3 cups chicken broth

3 teaspoons salt (we are fancy and use Himalayan sea salt)

2 teaspoon black pepper

8 oz cream cheese, cut into cubes

2/3 cup sour cream


Cut up the potatoes and fill the crockpot. I got all but 4 potatoes into

Then just right on top of the potatoes put the cubed butter, garlic and pour the broth all over the top. 
Cook on low for 12 hours (over night). Stir whenever you think about it. The ones on top will go a little brown over
night but that goes away.

Once they are soft enough – it will look like a lot of broth is left but that will get mashed into them – start mashing. 

Once they are pretty smooth add everything else (s&p, cream cheese and sour cream). Then mash away!

They turned out fantastic!  I was only doing the potatoes but it was so nice to have a clean kitchen. Also, if I had to do more things it would leave my stove open.
