Slow Cooker Mashed Potatoes

This is one of my favorite things to make in a crock pot. It's so simple, but my whole family loves mashed potatoes, and it can turn an ordinary weeknight meal into something pretty special.

Slow Cooker Mashed Potatoes

2 pounds red potatoes, cut into 2 inch pieces, peeled or unpeeled, your choice
½ cup sour cream 
1/4 cup butter
¼ cup milk
2 teaspoons minced garlic
2 teaspoons salt
1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

INSTRUCTIONS
Spray the inside of a slow cooker with cooking spray. Add chopped potatoes. Cover and cook 2 hours on high or 4 hours on low.
Add sour cream, butter, milk, garlic, salt, and pepper to potatoes. Use a hand mixer to blend together all ingredients. Give them a taste and add more salt if desired. Serve plain, or with any favorite toppings such as gravy, or cheese and bacon!
