Servings: 4 people
- 2 pounds russet potatoes
- 1/2 cup chicken stock
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/8 tsp black pepper
- 1 cup milk
- 1/2 stick butter
- 2 tbsp creamed horseradish optional
Lightly grease your slow cooker with butter or cooking spray.
Peel the potatoes (if desireand roughly chop them into 1-inch pieces.
Add chopped potatoes, chicken stock, salt, and a little bit of black pepper to the bowl of a slow cooker. Cover and cook on high for 4 hours, or until the potatoes are cooked and soft.
When the potatoes are done, gently warm the milk and butter together in a saucepan over low heat and use a potato masher or ricer to mash the potatoes right in the slow cooker.
Slowly stir in the warmed milk and butter. The potatoes will quickly soak up the liquid. If you want them creamier just add an additional 1/2 cup of milk.
Season with additional salt or pepper if desired. Optional: Add creamed horseradish for the tastiest mashed potatoes ever!
To keep the mashed potatoes warm you can leave them in the slow cooker for up to 4 hours on the 'keep warm' setting (or switch between low and off if your slow cooker doesn't have a keep warm setting)
