This Slow Cooker Garlic Parmesan Mashed Potatoes Recipe is going to be perfect for upcoming holiday cooking. My hubby decided he was going to test making our dinner mashed potatoes last week in one of our Crock-Pots. I was a bit skeptical! But these Crock-Pot Mashed Potatoes turned out wonderful. He loaded them up with perfect garlic and parm flavors. During the holidays cooking potatoes on the stove top can be a real pain. Cooking our mashed potatoes is always the last item we are waiting to finish cooking for our holiday dinners. The mad rush to mash the potatoes is no longer, ha ha. Now we can prep them and have them cook throughout the day.
