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!

This is exactly what I was looking for! Started these first thing in the morning and mashed them about 4pm for a 7pm supper. I halved the recipe for 3 of us with leftovers and they came out great. I will add that I used milk instead of half-and-half and added a fair amount more than in the recipe, but again, that is personal preference! Perfect with cube steaks and gravy! Thanks Foodie!

I tried these last night and they were wonderful. I never thought about cooking basic mash potatoes in a crock pot. When I cook for a holiday I have a lot going on and with these I don't have to watch them. I can even start them the night before. After I cooked and drained them I added the other ingredients and put them back into the slow cooker on low. I tripled the batch so I had a lot. They kept the same consistency though out the day. They didn't dry out or stick to the bottom. This is not true when cooking on the stove top and it's one less burner I have to use. Everyone loved them and wanted to know how I did it. Thanks so much for sharing. Allegra
