Our stove died on us so I've been trying new things and were being creative until we get a new one :giggle: I wanted to try this today but no idea how it would turn out ,and I'm not the best cook! :blush:

yes...however I precook them on the stove (boil). So don't know how'd it work without the stove.

But what I do is boil potatoes with minced garlic and chicken broth. When it's fork tender I move it over to the crock pot with sour cream and cream cheese, and on low for a couple of hours...yummy!

I was in charge of potatoes for thanksgiving :giggle2:

You could bake the potatos in the oven or microwave and scoop it out and season and smash like normal. They turn out super yummy out of the oven!

I was going to try today but always prefer something tried rather than winging it:) but I'll do this if I don't find a recipe that sounds good

KelseyH thanks for the link! I'll check that out after dinner

If you can get the potatoes soft.....this is for 4 - 5 russet potatoes - just add enough butter to choke a camel 1/2 to 3/4 of a cup, milk for creaminess (add a little at a time), and salt to taste. And not just a little salt, like a teaspoon. Mmmmm! If I just mention mashed taters my daughter will want me to cook them!

I'm SURE if you cube the potatoes and put the crockpot on high, they will eventually cook enough to mash. Maybe 1 or 2 or so hours I'm guessing?
