This Thanksgiving you can concentrate on the rest of dinner when you cook these Creamy Slow Cooker Mashed Potatoes in your crockpot. Simple and delicious!
These Creamy Slow Cooker Mashed Potatoes come together while you prep the rest of the meal. The best part is you can keep them warm in the slow cooker until ready to eat. My kids are big mashed potatoes fans but they thought these were the best they have ever made. To me, good mashed potatoes are like a dessert and I can just keep eating them.
Place potatoes, chicken stock and salt in a covered 4- to 5-quart slow cooker. Cook on high for 2 1/2 to 3 hours or on low 4 to 5 hours until potatoes are tender.
Drain the potatoes, reserving 1 cup of the cooking liquid. Return the potatoes to the slow cooker. Add sour cream and mash to desired consistency. Fold in chives and 1/2 cup reserved broth (add more broth to loosen if desired). Season with salt and pepper. Serve warm, topped with chives, butter, and bacon.

Hi Becky. I just made them again last night. So east and so good.
Mashed potatoes AND bacon – what’s not to love!! But they really do look like they’re on the lighter side and I love that! Happy Thanksgiving Quinn, to you and your family!
