Slow Cooker Mashed Potatoes

READY IN: 2hrs 15mins
Recipe by Halcyon Eve

This recipe is from Taste of Home magazine. It's become my classic holiday mashed potato recipe. Everyone loves them! I love that I can make them ahead, instead of trying to mash potatoes, make gravy, and carve turkey or roast all at once! I can make a double batch early in the day, toss them into the crockpot, and by the time dinner is served, the potatoes are ready and waiting! I usually skip the Ranch dressing, since I don't think it would taste good with my gravy. Time doesn't include time to peel, cook, and mash potatoes (usually takes me around 30-40 minutes)

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a mixing bowl, combine cream cheese, sour cream, butter, and seasonings until smooth. Stir into mashed potatoes until well blended.
  2. Transfer potatoes to slow cooker. Make an indentation in the middle of the potatoes and place a pat or two of butter in the indentation. Cover and heat on LOW for 2-4 hours. Do not heat for much longer than 4 hours, as it will affect the texture.
