  1. The last time I tried to cook potatoes in my slow cooker was an utter fail but you are giving me the courage to try again–I mean, if mashed potatoes with garlic are waiting for me at the end, it has to be worth it!

    • No liquid at all, they won’t burn as long as you don’t cook them too long. Stick to the time frame I said in the post and you will be good to go! BUT, since potatoes vary in size the time might vary a little bit, so make sure to poke them with the fork or skewer. Thanks for stopping by!

  2. I never thought to cook mashed potatoes in a slow cooker. Just wondering, have you ever cooked them this way without the peelings? – visiting from the blog hop (juggling Real Food and Life)

    • I haven’t tried it without the peels. I’m super lazy and HATE peeling potatoes, I think the peels help to protect the insides as well while in the crock pot. Going to be honest, not sure if that would work or not, they might get scorched with no peels.

  3. Dana, these sound SO good. I love garlic mashed potatoes, but I normally just buy the instant ones that only take a couple of minutes to make because I have never known how to make homemade garlic mashed potatoes. Thank you so much for sharing this recipe, I will absolutely be trying it out! Thank you for linking up to Thrifty Thursday.

  4. We make our mashed potatoes in the crock pot for every holiday now! It’s the easiest side dish and you can add so many yummy flavors, like garlic! :) I’ve enjoyed all your slow cooker posts these last few weeks! Thanks again for linking up with Let’s Get Real!

  5. You are brilliant Dana! Thanks so much for sharing this recipe with our Let’s Get Real readers. I have baked potatoes in my crock, but never thought of turning them into mashed potatoes. I don’t have enough time during the week to make mashed potatoes, but now I do. And……….with roasted garlic. I am over the moon excited to give this a try.

  6. Oh my goodness this looks awesome! I have some extra potatoes and I was needing a good recipe for them….looks like I found my answer!
    Would you mind to link this up to my Frugal Crafty Home Blog Hop? This would make an awesome addition to our collection. Thank you!

  7. Dana, this looks fantastic. I love roasted garlic (I would probably use more) in everything. Always great not to have to boil the potatoes. I’ve never used the slow cooker for potatoes but I have to try now. Thanks for posting on Great Idea Thursdays.

  8. Great recipe! We all love more easy slow cooker recipes! Thanks for sharing it at my weekly linky party at Crystal&Comp. I have shared with my facebook page and pinned it!

  9. I made these for dinner tonight and they were AWESOME! Using the crock pot really helped to keep our apartment much cooler, which is nice for the summer months. Plus, peeling this way was much easier than I expected. Thanks again!
