Rustic Garlic Mashed Potatoes

Directions

  1. In a 3-1/2- or 4-quart slow cooker, combine potatoes, garlic, and bay leaf. Pour broth over potato mixture.
  2. Cover and cook on low-heat setting for 6 to 8 hours or on high-heat setting for 3 to 4 hours.
  3. Drain potatoes in a colander over a bowl to catch the cooking liquid. Remove and discard bay leaf. Return potatoes to slow cooker. Mash potatoes with a potato masher.
  4. In a small saucepan, heat milk and butter until steaming and butter almost melts. Add milk mixture, salt, and enough of the reserved cooking liquid to mashed potatoes to reach desired consistency.*
  5. To serve, transfer potatoes to a serving bowl. Sprinkle with freshly ground black pepper. If desired, garnish with bay leaves.

From the Test Kitchen

*Make-Ahead Directions:

Return mashed potato mixture to slow cooker; keep warm on low or warm setting for up to 2 hours. If mixture thickens, stir in more of the reserved cooking juices to reach desired consistency.

For easy cleanup:

Line your slow cooker with a disposable slow cooker liner. Add ingredients as directed in recipe. Once your dish is finished cooking, spoon the food out of your slow cooker and simply dispose of the liner. Do not lift or transport the disposable liner with food inside.

Too salty - we need lower sodium foods especially during the holidays. I substituted low sodium broth and less garlic (a natural blood thinner) and added a few red potatoes because we love rustic kind of lumpy potatoes. Reds hold their shape. Also I left the skins on after a good scrub.I love the crock pot method!

I love these potatoes. Tried them on a smaller scale before making them for Thanksgiving. (I add some Velveeta Cheese to the heated milk/butter mixture.) Only thing I have to actually add though is do NOT add salt till after you taste test them. I use salt on my food but definitely didn't have to add any to these potatoes. I think the chicken broth took care of that. I give these an easy 5 stars.
