Earlier this summer I was watching QVC & the Today’s Special Value was a KitchenAid hand mixer. I was in need of a hand mixer & this one seemed perfect. As I watched the presentation of the mixer throughout the day, I learned a few tips. One of those tips was making mashed potatoes in the slow cooker & mashing them right in there. This was genius. One less pot to take up the stove. This would be perfect for the holidays when you are making lots of mashed potatoes & want to save yourself the trouble of washing extra pots & pans.
I got overly excited over this discovery & when I shared it with my mom she seemed unconvinced. However, she did order the mixer for me as a early bridal shower gift. She is too kind.
Well, I tried it. Since the weather is getting colder, mashed potatoes are now making a regular appearance at our dinner table. The mashed potatoes turned out so creamy. I couldn’t believe it. The potatoes are cooked with a little bit of water and coconut oil. You can cook them on high for about 3-4 hours or on low for 5-6 hours.
You are left with creamy mashed potatoes. This is definitely a quick and easy way to cook your mashed potatoes during family holidays, like Thanksgiving and Christmas.
