Like I've said before (here and here), I love my crockpot. In thinking ahead to the big Thanksgiving meal, I was trying to figure out ways to make the preparation of the meal easier. Having two little ones under-foot, I need to make the process as quick and stream-lined as possible!
So, what do you think of making your mashed potatoes in the crockpot? A Year of Slow Cooking has a recipe here that looks really good!
Even if you don't make your mashed potatoes in the crockpot, adding cream cheese and sour cream to them is always a good idea. I add cheddar cheese to ours, too, which adds a really nice flavor and richness when it's all melted in. Definitely not the healthiest ideas but you can't scrimp on taste at Thanksgiving, right?
