I love these ideas! Which brussel sprout one to use? Delicious decisions to make!
I hope you do not mind if I share Thanksgiving crockpot mashed potatoes. I even put my gravy in a mini crockpot. Anyway for the crockpot lovers here is how I do mashed potatoes.
5 lb red potatoes (you can use others, this just happens to be what we used)
Chicken Broth – you’ll need a big box or about 3 or 4 cans – enough to boil your potatoes in
3-4 garlic cloves (chopped and use what you like – more or less or none)
1 8 ounce sour cream
1 8 ounce cream cheese
1 stick butter
Dice potatoes (you can leave the skin on).
Boil potatoes and garlic in chicken broth until tender.
Remove potatoes from broth, but reserve broth.
Add sour cream and cream cheese to potatoes, mixing well. Use the reserved broth as needed to reach desired consistency. Now the recipe calls to use the broth, but you can use milk instead if you want your potatoes creamier. I use the broth and to me it is fine.
At this point, you can either refrigerate the mixture if you are not serving until the next day or if serving this day, go ahead and put it in a crockpot. Put the stick of butter down in the middle of the potatoes. As the mixture heats, the butter will melt which keeps the potatoes nice and fresh. When ready to serve, simply stir to mix the butter throughout and enjoy!
How long do you put in crockpot & what setting?
