Slow Cooker Loaded Mashed Potatoes Recipe

Every year my Mom made cream cheese mashed potatoes for Thanksgiving, and I've tailored the recipe to my family and have carried on the tradition. I also make them in a slow cooker, which is convenient because I make the potatoes a day ahead, freeing up oven space. —Ann Nolte, Tampa, Florida

"I've made this twice now, and they are so yummy. Very rich tasting. Because of time constraints, I actually cooked it both times in the oven at 350 for 30-40 minutes and it turned out perfect!"

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Mar. 3, 2015

"My potatoes were firm when they were mashed and refrigerated but turned soft and soupy when reheated in the slow cooker. Maybe it was because I used low fat cream cheese and non fat sour cream. Tasted good but not appealing"

"I thought these were great but they got a little to thick after 3 hours on low. They tasted better at around 1 1/2 to 2 hours on low."

"These mash potatoes are so good My Daughter loves them! I leave the potatoes whole with skin on when the potatoes are soft I scoop out the potatoes and then turn the skin and what is left into potato skins very good . something to much on while everyone waits for everything to be done."

"My family is picky about mashed potatoes. They want them GOOD! And this recipe was a HIT! We didn't have pepper jack cheese, so we just used cheddar and added onion and garlic SALT as well as the powder. We can't wait to try it again with the pepper jack cheese.

I loved the idea of keeping it in the crockpot until it's time for dinner. What a great idea! I made a note to do that on Thanksgiving next year . I may end up preparing potatoes earlier in the day and putting them in the crockpot as a rule!

"I made this last year for a big Christmas party and what a hit! I was afraid that all that bacon would overpower the rest of the dish so I reduced it by half. I also reduced the cheese to 1 cup of each one. I used red potatoes, Neufchatel cream cheese, doubled the green onions eliminating the onion powder and used fresh garlic instead of garlic powder. There wasn't a spoonful left!"

"These sound absolutely delicious. Very similar to what my mother used to make. I will just make them the day before. The day of, I will just put them in the oven to heat through. I have done that with other recipes similar to this and it works very well. Thanks for the recipe"

"I have a similar recipe I call Renee? Potatoes (named after the friend who gave me the recipe) .. Yet you have inspired me to add a few more ?yummies? to them ..

Rather than the time consuming process of cubing, boiling and cooling, I use a wonderful potato bag, purchased from a local art fair a few years ago ..
I can place up to six medium potatoes in it (do not peel or prick) and cook in the micro for 6 to 8 minutes, cool and cube (with or without peeling), then add all of the goodies ..
I always make a big batch, scooping a couple cups into a quart size zip lock, press the bag ?til flat and stack in my freezer .."
