I love potatoes. And even though I’m a HUGE lover of potatoes, I think my sister is even a bigger lover of potatoes. Ever since we were little kids her #1 favorite thing to eat was a great big heaping mound of mashed potatoes. She would like to make what she called a “mashed potato oven” and put a big blob of butter right in the middle of her stack of potatoes so that it could get all melty and delicious.

Now that she is grown up, her tastes are a little more refined, but she still loves her potatoes. I think this Slow Cooker Garlic Herb Mashed Potatoes Recipe version with garlic (one of her favorites as an adult) and fresh herbs will be just the thing to make her happy. I know it makes me happy!

The great thing about this recipe is that it spends most of its time in the Crockpot. If you’re making a big family meal (as in Thanksgiving!) you can let these sit in the slow cooker while you are busy preparing all of the other meal components. All you need to do is mix them up at the end. Easy peasy!
