Slow-cooker mashed potatoes recipe
5 pounds Yukon gold potatoes, peeled and cut into cubes
1 cup Kitchen Basics Original Chicken Stock
2 McCormick Bay Leaves
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, cut into chunks
1 teaspoon salt
3/4 teaspoon McCormick Black Pepper, Ground
1/2 teaspoon McCormick Garlic Powder
1/2 to 1 cup milk
1 teaspoon McCormick Parsley Flakes
Spray inside of 6-quart slow cooker with no stick cooking spray. Add potatoes, stock and bay leaves. Cover.
Cook 4 hours on HIGH or until potatoes are tender, stirring after each hour. Remove bay leaves. Stir in butter, salt, pepper and garlic powder. Cover. Let stand 5 minutes.
Beat potatoes with electric mixer on medium-high speed or mash with potato masher, gradually adding milk, until smooth. Stir in parsley. Top with additional butter, if desired.
Tip: Mashed potatoes can be kept on warm setting in the slow cooker. Stir before serving. If potatoes get too dry, stir in additional milk until desired consistency.
