Slow Cooker Mashed Potatoes

Add these light and creamy Slow Cooker Mashed Potatoes (with cauliflower & Greek yogurt) to your holiday menu. A family favorite recipe from Produce For Kids!

My kids don’t believe me that Thansgiving is next week. Actually, they believe me now, because they looked into their school planners this weekend and saw that a 2-day school week is just around the corner. It creeps up pretty fast doesn’t it?

As we were discussing our Thanksgiving plans, of course we talked about what we would be eating. I love that my kids are now old enough to really get excited about food holidays like Thanksgiving and remember traditional parts of our menu, like my family’s Italian Thanksgiving Stuffing, which was the first thing they requested. The second thing they requested? Mashed potatoes. My kids love mashed potatoes so I decided to try out this Slow Cooker Mashed Potatoes recipe out on them this past weekend.

12 Fresh Takes on Holiday Favorites from Produce For Kids {Free e-Cookbook!}

These Slow Cooker Mashed Potatoes are one of several recipes included in Produce for Kids’ holiday e-cookbook, Festive Flavors. This e-cookbook is available for you to download your free copy  here on the Produce for Kids blog. It is filled with delicious holiday recipes from Sweet Potato Casserole to Creamed Spinach and Mushrooms to Cranberry Apple Crisp (I’m going to be making this one for sure!). The recipes are simple and straight-forward, and on the healthier side – without lacking in flavor.

My family can certainly vouch for these mashed potatoes, the entire batch was polished off in one day over two meals. The addition of both cauliflower and Greek yogurt along with red potatoes made them perfectly light and fluffy, yet creamy all at once. We loved them!

Looking for a new slow cooker? I love my Crock-Pot with Stove-Top Browning – the stove top browning feature was a total game changer for me!

    I love that these potatoes have cauliflower and Greek yogurt in them AND they are made in a pressure cooker!

    mm, mashed potatoes are my favorite Thanksgiving food hands down! I’ve never tried making them in the slow cooker though. This recipes looks great, love the added nutrients from cauli and yogurt!

    Ahh they look amazing! I like how you combined cauliflower and potatoes, because I feel like doing 100% cauliflower isn’t nearly as satisfying as regular mashed potatoes..but these would be! 

    side note: what influencer program was this through if you don’t mind me asking?? trying to get involved with more food related ones 🙂

    HA!  I love that they didn’t believe you!  That is totally something my kids would pull.  Like they would ask their teachers to confirm.  These potatoes look amazing!  I love that they are done in the slow cooker and free up oven space!  Pinned!

    With cauliflower, awesome! Love the idea of having the mashed potatoes in the slow cooker, away from the always-too-full oven and stove top!

    like the addition of cauliflower, love fat and a great substitute for mashed potatoes

  10. Lori @ RecipeGirl posted November 20, 2015 at 9:30 am

    This looks the best idea to make a little room on the cooktop and adding in the cauliflower is right up my alley!

    This year for Christmas I’m finally try slow cooker mashed potatoes. These turned out perfect and I can’t wait to try them! LOVE that you used Greek yogurt in these beauties.
