Mashed potatoes are one of those side dishes that you make the same way ever time. And often, the recipe you used got passed down through your family from generation to generation. But just because something is old, does not mean it is good. And Crafty has shared their spectacular mashed potato recipe, for free, to give people a new way to enjoy this delectable side dish. Not only is it easy to make, but it will also taste better than your grandma’s. Give it a shot and then share your reaction in the comments.
Ingredients for the best mashed potato recipe you’ll ever taste:
- 2.5 pounds of peeled russet potatoes (this is about 6 small/medium or 3 large spuds)
- 2 cloves garlic, smashed
- Butter or cooking spray for greasing
- Salt and pepper to taste
- 2 teaspoons dried rosemary
- ¾ cup cream
- ¾ cup milk
- ¼ unsalted butter (half a stick), cut into chunks
Follow these directions to create the best-tasting mashed potatoes you’ll ever have.
First, grease up your slow cooker with the butter or cooking spray. Chop up your peeled russet potatoes, so they form one-inch cubes. Then toss the potatoes into the slow cooker. Spread them out evenly across the bottom.
Add the smashed garlic onto the potatoes. Then add as much salt and pepper as your taste buds desire. Sprinkle the rosemary across the top of your dish.
Pour the cream all over the potatoes. Slather them with the delicious milk fat. Then stir your potato chunks to get all the ingredients mixed up.
Now, put the lid on your crockpot and then flip it on to the high setting. Let it do its thing for three hours.
When the timer goes off, carefully remove the top of your slow cooker. Then poke a potato chunk with a fork. If it is very tender, then your slow cooker has done it right. If it is not, give if another thirty minutes in the machine. When it is ready to go and super tender, reduce the crockpot’s heat to the “warm” setting.
Now, it’s time to make your buttery glaze. Combine the milk and butter into a safe microwave bowl. Then “nuke” it until the butter has melted. Stir the milk and butter mixture until it has combined.
Now turn your crockpot off. Scrap down the sides to knock the brown bits off. While they’re still in the slow cooker, mash the tender potatoes. And when you’ve got a smooth smash of potatoes, slowly add the butter and milk mixture and combine.
And that’s it. Scoop the most delicious mashed potatoes into a bowl or on a dish and serve as a side with your entree.
Craftsy warned “at first it will seem like too much liquid, but as you stir, it will begin to soak into the potatoes. If desired, you can add a little more milk or cream to bring the potatoes to your desired consistency and creaminess.”
