  • 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)
