Place the potatoes in the crock pot with 1 cup of the milk, salt, pepper, garlic and butter.

Cover and cook on high for 4-5 hours until the potatoes are slightly soft.

Then either remove the potatoes to a mixing bowl or mix in your crock pot if it has a ceramic liner (do not mix in a non-stick liner as it will scratch it).

Mix well with an electric hand mixer.  Slightly add in the last 1 cup of milk until the mashed potatoes are the consistency that you desire.

Serve and enjoy!

This is such an inexpensive side dish and now it is so easy thanks to the crock pot. Not only is this great for Thanksgiving, Christmas, Easter or any holiday but it is also great for potlucks.

You can make a huge batch of mashed potatoes and take them to serve without spending much time or money. It is a win all around.

Feel free to use russet potatoes or yukon gold potatoes. Just use what you prefer for these crock pot mashed potatoes. You could even try red potatoes but we love russet potatoes the best.

We have also used chicken broth instead of milk and adding cream cheese for a delicious creamy texture. You can keep adding until you get the desired consistency.
