Amazing Slowcooker Mashed Potatoes

Slowcooker Mashed Potatoes

Wow, until recently I have never prepared mashed potatoes in the slow cooker.

I was in for a real surprise.

The taste totally different than traditional, boiled potatoes for mashing.

The depth of flavor is greater. I would say more like when you roast potatoes. They are definitely not boring.

For another great side dish try our Cheddar Bacon Risotto

Stir in a little bit of herbs, top with butter or a spoon of gravy and you have a new potato side dish to add to your repertoire.

Let me know if you try them and what you think.
