    Foodie Friend's Note:

    I searched through many fabulous looking recipes on this site, but I needed something very basic, traditional and that I could cook overnight in a crock pot with minimal prep in the morning. I served this as a side dish at a lunch for 20 people and there were no leftovers! Important: since they are basic mashed potatoes I did serve them with gravy (along with fried chicken, biscuits and green beans. Hope you enjoy!

      This was very good! I also loved being able to do everything in the crockpot. I also had to use a good bit more half-and-half. Thanks for posting.

      Made this recipe to free up space on the stove this Thanksgiving. The recipe was so simple to prepare, and everyone in the family enjoyed it. I love the fact that the entire recipe is made from start to finish in the crock pot. So many recipes I found were made on the stove top then transferred to the crock to be kept warm. I will continue to make this recipe for years to come. Thank you for posting this recipe.

      I love this recipe! Thank you Foodie Friend for posting it. I love mashed potatoes. I don't make them because I get off work around 5:30 (I work at home) and try to have dinner on the table between 6 - 6:30. Now I can make mashed potatoes again. I mashed the potatoes around 8:00 am put them in slow cooker on the keep warm setting. They were perfect at 6:30. The only problem I had was not eating them all before dinner. This recipe is so good!
