Turns out you’ve been preparing potatoes wrong your whole life. There’s a way tastier, and easier, way to make your favorite side dish, and Tiffany from Creme de la Crumb figured it out!
She makes her mashed potatoes using the slow cooker! It’s a match made in heaven, and when you see how she did it you’ll agree completely.
“These mashed potatoes will change your life,” Tiffany wrote on her blog post about the project. “Creamy, tons of flavor, and seriously the easiest mashed potatoes you will ever make -- you’ll never go back to boiling and smashing!”
There is no extra work to this recipe, and anyone could complete the basic steps!
“These require, seriously seven minutes of preparation,” Tiffany wrote.
She started by cutting her potatoes into pretty large chunks, adding that you don’t even have to peel them if you don’t want to. The skin isn’t actually noticeable in the flavor of the potatoes, if you have never tried it before.
After cutting them, Tiffany sprayed her slow cooker with cooking oil and threw all the potatoes in.
Then, she set the side dish to cook for you a few hours.
Tiffany made sure after the timer was up that the potatoes were soft. Be careful not to touch them, though, they’re hotter than they look! You can check that they’re soft enough by poking them with a knife or fork. They should instantly start to crumble when you do this.
When the potatoes were ready, Tiffany added in sour cream, milk, garlic, salt, and pepper ad then grabbed her hand mixer.
“When they’re done, you come back, dump the last few ingredients in, and whip those babies up in a matter of about one minute,” Tiffany wrote. “The end. Perfect mashed potatoes every single time. No peeling, no boiling, no mashing.”
After the potatoes were completely mixed with the added ingredients, Tiffany transferred them over to a serving dish.
Then, she topped the side with cheddar cheese and bacon bits to finish it off.
These will be a family, friend and neighbor (really, everyone) favorite!
“Once you try these, you will never need another mashed potato recipe for as long as you live,” Tiffany wrote.
