The easiest Mashed Potatoes Ever

Mashed potatoes are the ultimate comfort food! I think potatoes could be a food group all to their own. AND they would be at the top of my list. I mean really there is not anything much better than dreamy and creamy mashed potatoes.

Any way you make them they are just the epitome of home. Making them in the crock pot makes them so easy. They can cook while you are busy about your day. Come home to them all ready to mix to perfection.

Somehow the combination of the butter and chicken stock slow cooking lends to the best consistency for the Creamiest Slow Cooker Mashed Potatoes.

However, I don’t turn down potatoes in any form. Cheesy Potato Casserole, Skillet Garlic Parmesan Potatoes, and Instant Pot Mashed Potatoes are some of my favorites too!

  • Place cut potatoes in slow cooker. Add in broth, salt (if desired), pepper. Slice 1 stick of butter and place on top.
