Crock Pot Mashed Potatoes are the perfect make ahead mashed potato recipe! Rich and creamy mashed potatoes that are perfect to feed a crowd. This slow cooker recipe is a definite keeper and will a star at your Thanksgiving dinner!


  • 5 pounds potatoes (russet, yellow, or red), peeled and cut into 1- inch cubes
  • 1 1/2 cups chicken broth
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • 3 chicken bouillon cubes or 3 teaspoons Better Than Bouillon
  • 2/3 cup half and half
  • 3/4 cup butter, cubed at room temperature
  • 8 ounces cream cheese, room temperature
  • Fresh cracked black pepper to taste


  1. Place the potatoes in your 6-8 quart slow cooker. Add in the chicken broth, garlic, and chicken bouillon. Cover and cook on high for 3-4 hours, or on low for 6-8 hours, stirring once halfway through cooking.
  2. When potatoes are done, add in the half and half, butter, and cream cheese. Mash using a potato masher or hand mixer until desired consistency is reached. You can add more half and half if you prefer creamier potatoes. Season with black pepper as desired.
  3. Serve immediately, or keep warm in slow cooker until ready to serve, up to 2 hours.


Optional: Add in 1 1/2 cups grated cheddar cheese for cheesy mashed potatoes, which I did when I made these for the pictures! I also used Yukon Gold Potatoes in the images shown, as they are our favorite!

garnish with fresh parsley.

Store airtight in refrigerator for up to 3 days.
