These were wonderful ChrisMc. So easy to throw in the crockpot and forget about them. I used a potato masher and the potatoes came out very smooth and not lumpy. We all loved the garlic flavor. Thanks :)

I had to have a meal ready when my daughter got home from school so she had enough time to get ready for her dance recital. This was easy to get together in the morning. What made it more appealing is I was able to mash them right in the crockpot. Turned it to low to keep them warm while I sliced my roast and got it ready for my company. Served it with #32215.

Like some others, my potatoes turned brown too. This method didn't save me any time, and I ended up dumping out my batch for brown potatoes. I see other had success, but I don't think I'll try the crockpot method for potatoes again.

These were excellent! I utilized this recipe for Thanksgiving to save real-estate on my stove top. I added chives and cream cheese and the addition made for a creamier mash. Considering using this recipe on game-day, with a variety of toppings on the side so guests can tailor their potatoes how they prefer. Who wouldn't love a mashed potatoe buffet!

Okay, first things first. If you like white, perfectly whipped mashed potatoes... move on. The best way I can describe these is rustic. They are yellowish, lumpy, have skins.... and are freaking delicious! Seriously. I made them overnight so they'd be ready for dinner the next day, and I wanted to eat mashed potatoes for breakfast. I had some garlic parmesan butter (sold at Sam's Club), so I just used that instead of the garlic. I used a masher and probably could have kept mashing away to get them smoother, but I don't mind lumpy mashed potatoes. My only piece of advice would be to add the milk gradually when you mash them. I threw it all in and probably could have just used 2/3 of it.

When I first found this recipealso thought it was , I was excited! Not so much when serving them. I didn't like the texture. I also thought the garlic taste was too strong.

I had a bit of trouble with these. First of all This recipe only made 5 servings for me. I cooked them on low for about 5 hrs. and some of them, not sure if they were the ones on top or on the bottom) got rubbery and didn't mash. I also had to use more than 1 cup of milk to get them to a correct texture. They were very stiff with the amount called for. That said, I really enjoyed the connivence and they tasted great. I will use this again when I want a quick meal when we get home from church.

This was wonderful. The only change I made was I only cooked it for 3.5 hours on low because my crock pot seems to cook faster/hotter than others and I added a bit more salt. This was a wonderful recipe that I will use again and again. The potatoes were extremely creamy when I blended them. Two thumbs up!!
