These slow cooker mashed potatoes are just as rich and creamy as stovetop mashed potatoes with far less work! The perfect hands-off side dish for any holiday dinner.
- Slow cooker
- 1.5 lbs Little Potatoes, halved
- 3/4 cup low sodium chicken broth
- 3/4 tsp salt
- 1/4 tsp black pepper
- 1/3 cup half-and-half (or milk, or cream)
- 2 Tbsp unsalted butter
- 2 Tbsp chives, sliced
- (To taste) salt and pepper
Place halved potatoes in a 2 1/2 to 4-quart slow cooker.
Add the broth, salt, pepper, and stir.
Cover and cook on low for four hours or until tender. The outer potatoes will cook more quickly, so one stir halfway through cooking is a good idea (but not necessary).
Add half-and-half and butter and mash until desired consistency is reached. Stir in chives and season with salt and pepper to taste.
