I love making mashed potatoes in the slow cooker! It is one pot cooking for a really great side. Plus, you can make the potatoes and keep them warm for quite a while. Making potatoes this way works especially well for feeding a crowd.
As I’ve mentioned in a previous post, I have two slow cookers. I made Pork Chops with Dressing and Creamy Gravy in one slow cooker and these Savory Mashed Potatoes in the other slow cooker. Everything was ready at about the same time and dinner came together very easily. With the addition of a nice tossed salad, I had a complete meal all ready to go with very little stress at the last minute.
These potatoes are so flavorful with sharp cheddar cheese, sour cream, smoked paprika (GO GET THIS), and, of course, our friend sea salt. Really and truly, if you have never tried smoked paprika, you are missing something wonderful. Regular paprika is not even on the radar anymore for me…well, hardly ever.
