A hearty meal is just never complete without warm mashed potatoes. What’s better than mashed potatoes, you may be wondering? Mashed potatoes made in a slow cooker! Just imagine creamy potatoes with melted butter to compliment your meal with very little work and only one dish. Can you say, heck yeah?!
In fact, these are the perfect side to your next a big turkey dinner since you don’t need to worry about boiling the potatoes and these are prepped well ahead of eating.
This means that when you’re in the crazy hectic last minutes of getting your turkey carved and your gravy ready, these are waiting and ready in the slow cooker. If they’re done a little early, just set your slow cooker to warm and they’ll be perfect.
The best potatoes to use are red, white or yellow because of their smooth texture and buttery flavor! If you’d like a creamier texture you can also add in a splash of milk or heavy cream if needed but I haven’t found I ever need it in mine.
Feel free to sub in vegetable broth for the initial cooking, the results will still be amazing. Whatever taste and texture you prefer can easily be incorporated into this recipe!

- ¾ cup chicken broth
- ½ teaspoon onion powder

- ¼ cup butter
- ¼ cup sour cream
