Cheesy Mashed Potatoes – Slow Cooker

Do you cook most of the holiday meals in your home? At this point, we are still blessed to have a lot of our grandparents living, so we contribute side dishes and desserts like this cheesy mashed potatoes slow cooker recipe every year for Easter.

I have had this recipe in my “stash” for many years, and it will not surprise you that my secret ingredient is Greek yogurt.

The Greek yogurt adds a delicious creaminess to the final product, and of course, who can go wrong with any recipe that involves bricks of sharp cheddar cheese? 

I don’t make this recipe often, but every year I end up making it for Easter dinner at one of the 5 family gatherings over the course of the weekend.  It’s the perfect stress-free side dish thanks to the slow cooker, and it tastes amazing with sweet glazed ham.

A tip when you are making this recipe – if you don’t like the “bits” that come with the potato skins you can peel the potatoes first for a creamier dish.

Bon appetit!
