Crock-Pot Mashed Potatoes

If you have ever had one of those times, where you needed to use up 5lbs of potatoes, this is the recipe for you!  I had forgotten that I already had a 5lb bag of potatoes and bought another..and well I certainly didn’t need 10lbs sitting around so I whipped up a big batch of mashed potatoes.  Luckily my entire family (including the picky toddler) loves them!

    I love this idea….can I just mix in the crockpot without taking the potatoes out and mixing and then placing back?

      Yes you can, now I use a liner, so I was concerned that I would rip the bag, however if you don’t use a liner…I would go right ahead and just mix it right up in the crock pot. I’m a liner addict LOL…
