Slow Cooker Mashed Potatoes with Roasted Garlic
Start by washing and drying your potatoes. Then cut them into quarters – I used a mix of yellow and white potatoes.
We love leaving the skin on mashed potatoes but you can totally peel them if you want first.
Once the potatoes are nice and soft, add the garlic, butter, Greek yogurt (or sour cream) and dried oregano. Then whip them up using a hand blender or mixer for about 30 seconds.
Finally, finish mashing with a regular potato masher until the desired consistency. Hand mashing the potatoes prevents them from getting too gummy or gluey.
We like to leave ours with a few chunks but feel free to make them creamier if you like.
Just a few ingredients and you can’t beat how ridiculously easy and creamy these are!
