The perfect slow cooker mashed potatoes to make this Thanksgiving for your friends and family. These are loaded with butter, cheese, garlic and can stand alone without any gravy!
Thanksgiving is only a couple weeks away, I usually start working on my menu well in advance so that I can figure out how I’ll make everything and have each side dish ready at the time of the meal.
It’s not easy to cook 8 different things at once in the oven or on the stove so I use my slow cooker as much as I can for my meal. These slow cooker mashed potatoes are just one of the many things that I make in the slow cooker. They’re so easy to make this way and they turn out great! You can find the recipe below!

How to Make Slow Cooker Mashed Potatoes
Ingredients You Need
- 5 Pounds Russet Potatoes
- 1 Small Onion, Diced
- 1 Cup Chicken Broth
- 1 TBSP Garlic, Minced
- 1/2 Cup Sour Cream
- 8 Ounces Cream Cheese
- 1/2 Cup Butter
Cook the diced potatoes in a slow cooker on low along with the onion, chicken broth, and minced garlic. Cook for about 6 hours, the potatoes will absorb some of the chicken stock. Add the sour cream, cream cheese, and butter into the slow cooker with the potatoes. Using an electric mixer, whip the potatoes until they’re smooth. Enjoy!
