Crockpot Mashed Potatoes

Crockpot Mashed Potatoes
It's that time again! The Crazy Cooking Challenge! This month it's mashed potatoes.
I don't even remember the last time I made them. It's not that we don't like them, it just seems like alot of work for two people. We'll be eating these for a couple of meals.

The rules are the same as the past two months, you have to find a recipe from another blogger. This was a challenge for me! Every recipe I came across either had too many ingredients, seemed too bland or just didn't interest me. Then I stumbled upon this one from Feels Like Home. I knew it was the one I wanted to try.

Add creamed mixture to potatoes and mix well. I like my mashed potatoes a little lumpy. I also like to leave the skin on. For this recipe I peeled them.

These potatoes had a wonderful texture and the taste was heavenly! I can't wait to eat leftovers!!

Crockpot Mashed Potatoes

5 pounds Yukon Gold potatoes, cubed
8 oz low fat cream cheese, softened
8 oz low fat sour cream
5 oz evaporated skim milk (1 small can)
1 small onion, diced
Salt & pepper, to taste
Milk & butter

1.Add potatoes to a large pot of water. Bring to a boil and cook until tender, about 15 minutes. Drain and mash.
2.In the meantime, saute onion in a small skillet until onion is translucent. If you skip this step, the onions will be crunchy in your finished potatoes.
3.In a medium bowl, combine cream cheese, sour cream, evaporated milk, onion, salt, and pepper until blended. Add to mashed potatoes and mix well.
4.Transfer mashed potato mixture to the crock pot. I used a 4-quart crock pot.
5.Can be cooked on low up to 4 hours. Re-moisten with milk and butter if needed.

Be sure to stop by all the blogs listed and vote for your favorite!

Hey Patty ! I'm Chef Corey from Family Fresh Meals. Mash potatoes are my fav!!!! Yum :) Anywhoo, I just started a new recipe Linky called Sunday Funday: Recipe of the Week. This recipe would be perfect for the first week theme CROCKPOT. Each week will be a new theme. Once this Sunday Funday gets going, I would LOVE to do a random gift card giveaway each week. But I am going to need a good amount of posts to start that, so come join the fun each week. At the end of the week, a recipe/blog will be picked at random to be the featured recipe for the following week. Hope you stop by and join!

XO Chef Corey
