Slow Cooker Cheesy Garlic Mashed Potatoes - one of the easiest and yummiest crock pot side dish recipes!

Hello again, Lil’ Luna readers! It’s Alicia from The Baker Upstairs, and I have the most delicious fall recipe to share with you today! Now that the days are getting colder, I love coming home from work to something warm and delicious in the slow cooker, and what could be better than homemade mashed potatoes? These cheesy garlic crock pot mashed potatoes are the perfect accompaniment to any fall meal, and so incredibly easy to make. These are without a doubt the very best mashed potatoes I’ve ever made! They’re creamy and smooth and savory, and the cheese adds so much delicious flavor.

The garlic adds a great depth of flavor without being overpowering at all. Because it cooks so long with the potatoes, it gets nice and mellow and so delicious. My kids normally hate garlic but they loved these potatoes and could not get enough! These potatoes would be super fun for a Thanksgiving side dish, but they’re easy enough to make for a weeknight dinner. Cheesy garlic mashed potatoes for the win!

I’m just going to go ahead a put my crock pot on the counter for the season. So many great ways to use it.

Amy Stafford

I can’t wait to try this recipe out. I always throw a large Thanksgiving party and the mashed potatoes take so much time right before the party starts {when I am usually flipping out, so having them slow cooking would be a huge help.

Tonia from TheGunnySack

What a great idea! I love using my slow cooker during the holidays!

Kimberly Ann @ Bake Love Give

How have I never made mashed potatoes in the crock pot? I just may need to make this happen tonight!

    Lil' Luna

    I’ve never made them in the crock pot either, so I’m excited to try these! 😀

Becky Hardin | The Cookie Rookie

YUM! Can’t believe these were made in a slow cooker! These look amazing!

Derek

awesome way to have delicious home made mashed potatoes ready for the weeknight!

Shelley @ Two Healthy Kitchens

My daughter looooooves mashed potatoes … and I love how easy this recipe is in the slow cooker! Even better, cooking side dishes like this in the slow cooker really frees up stovetop and oven space when you’re pulling together big holiday meals – total lifesaver!

Jaren (Diary of a Recipe Collector)

I’m pretty obsessed with my slow cooker lately! I can’t wait to try these!

    Lil' Luna

    SAME!! And I’ve never tried potatoes in the slow cooker – so excited to try this!!

Hi there!…

I have little, to NO skills in the kitchen, which is why I decided to choose mashed potatoes for an upcoming thanksgiving potluck I’ll be attending… Figured I can’t mess up mashed potatoes, right?!… :::crosses fingers::: Anyway, Just curious as to how many people this recipe (3lbs of potatoes) should feed?

And if I were to bump that up to say 5lbs of potatoes, how much should I adjust the recipe? Any help will be GREATLY appreciated!… Thanks!

Nosipho

Going to make these tomorrow for Father’s day meal.

    Lil' Luna

    How’d they turn out? Hope everyone enjoyed them!! We love them!
