In all my years of holiday dinners mashed potatoes have always made an appearance in some form. We enjoy mashed potatoes all year around, but they just HAVE to make an appearance during the holidays. But making mashed potatoes during the holidays can be a ton of work, but not anymore! These Rustic Slow Cooker Garlic Mashed Potatoes are made in the SLOW COOKER! No boiling required – just dump in all the ingredients, set it and forget it!
And in true Busy Baker fashion, these Rustic Slow Cooker Garlic Mashed Potatoes are not just any old mashed potatoes – they’re inspired by my favourite steakhouse mashed potatoes and they’re going to take your holiday dinner to the next level!
And also in true Busy Baker fashion, these mashed potatoes include the skins. If you’ve been a reader of mine for any length of time you know how much I hate peeling potatoes…seriously, I’ll do just about anything to avoid that task. Sure, I also love the health benefits of leaving the potato skins on, but if I’m really honest I’m all about the time saving. And really, who wouldn’t love the fact that a super easy slow cooker recipe just became even easier!?
If you’re looking for a super simple side dish that’s as easy to make as it is delicious, these Rustic Slow Cooker Garlic Mashed Potatoes are the recipe for you!
