Slow Cooker Mashed Potatoes are a great way to free up space on your stove. They are easy to make, can be made ahead, and full of flavor thanks to a little garlic.
Place cubed potatoes in the slow cooker. (cut into 1½ inch cubes) Pour in the chicken broth and milk. Add butter and sprinkle with garlic, salt, and pepper. Be sure to leave the garlic on top so it doesn't burn.
Cook on HIGH for hours or LOW 6-8 hours or until potatoes are tender.
When ready to mash add in the sour cream and mash with a potato masher or an electric mixer. Just be careful not to over mix or your potatoes may become gummy. Serve immediately or place on the warm setting for up to 2 hours. Stir before serving.
