More About This Recipe
  • Is there anything the slow cooker can’t do? This crazy-easy recipe for mashed potatoes requires almost no effort and saves you oven and stove space during big holidays like Thanksgiving. In addition to milk, this recipe uses sour cream for a richer, tangier flavor and gets an extra boost from garlic and onion powder. If you want to make this recipe a little healthier without sacrificing the creamy, smooth texture, you can substitute plain yogurt for the sour cream. One expert tip for preparing this recipe: when mashing the potatoes, be sure not to overmix by beating too hard with an electric mixer (we recommend sticking to the good, old-fashioned potato masher). If you overmix mashed potatoes, the starches react in a way that makes the potatoes gooey and gummy. If you’re unsure how much to mash and when, follow our trips and tricks in this how to make mashed potatoes article. Can’t stop eating mashed potatoes?
