Day 175: Crockpot Garlic Mashed Potatoes

Day 175.

We love mashed potatoes, but I find it tiring to stand over a huge pot of boiling water, especially in the summer when it is so darn hot! This recipe is my fix for that! The potatoes cook in the crockpot, then you just whip them with your mixer. Kurt thinks they taste like restaurant mashed potatoes. :)

Here's what you'll need.
Photobucket
2 - 2 1/2 lb. potatoes, scrubbed
1/4 cup water
2 tablespoons butter
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon garlic salt
1/2 to 1 cup milk

Photobucket
Dice the potatoes into 1 inch pieces.

Photobucket
Place all the potatoes into the crockpot.

Photobucket
Cut the butter into small pieces.

Photobucket
Place the butter in the crockpot with the potatoes.

Photobucket
Add the spices. I sprinkled in a little black pepper too.

Photobucket
Pour the water in.

Photobucket
Cook on LOW for 7 hours or on HIGH for 4.

Photobucket
Place the potatoes into mixing bowl.

Photobucket
Oh, man. This smells amazing...

Photobucket
Using your whisk attachment (if you have one), give the potatoes a good whip.

Photobucket
Mmmm.

Photobucket
Now here's my secret to cut down on lumps in the potatoes. Heat your milk before adding it. Think about it. Cold milk into hot potatoes? Not such a good idea...

Photobucket
Add the milk to the potatoes.

Photobucket
Turn the mixer on. Low at first, the gradually crank it up.

Photobucket
Whoa, baby.

I will definitely give this a go. I love crockpot recipes and this garlic mashed potatoes will be perfect for my crockpot pork pot roast! Now all I need is a bit of greens, veggie salad perhaps? or blanched or sauteed asparagus maybe? Hmmm..Decicions, decisions.
