READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by clw721

I made this recipe last year for Thanksgiving. It's very good and saves a lot of time. You may have to lengthen your crock pot cooking time.

Worked like a charm. I omitted the chives and made it a day ahead by not putting it in the oven but just reheating it in the crockpot on low for about 2 hours. Stir it about half way through. It was nice to have the mashed potatoes done ahead of time.
