Mashed potatoes made in a slow cooker. This was my first attempt at cooking without a recipe - the potatoes turned out very moist and very flavorful. Be careful to not overcook.

  • Place potatoes into a slow cooker, and sprinkle with black pepper. Stir together the gravy mix and water in a measuring cup until well blended. Pour this over the potatoes, then pour in the evaporated mink. Stir to blend. Cover, and cook for 4 hours on Low. When finished, drain any excess liquid. Mash potatoes with a potato masher, and stir in the butter.

This was okay...not great just okay. The flavor was kind of bland and we ended up dumping the leftovers instead of eating them. I thought the gravy mix would give it more of a kick but it didn't. This recipe did perk up my interest though for making potatoes in the crock pot...great idea...just need to tweak the recipe a bit for our family's taste preferences. Thanks for sharing the idea.

Followed the recipe (for 10 servings). It was tasty. I did add some shredded moz cheese and used white pepper instead of black pepper. The family LOVED it! This is easy and worked well with our Christmas family meal. Read More
