I’m totally preparing for Thanksgiving this year so on the big day, I’m not fumbling around the kitchen like a mad woman. Okay so there will still be some of that, but I’m trying to tone it down with cooking a bit the night before and using my crockpot.
Of course you have to have mashed potatoes on Thanksgiving. The HH and Monkey Boy would riot if I didn’t. So this way I just set it & forget it while I have 6-8 hours to cook everything else. Perfect.
5 pounds of potatoes, peeled and cubed
1 1/2 cups chicken broth
3 tablespoons butter
2 cloves minced garlic
1 cup sour cream
4 ounces of softened cream cheese
4 pieces of cooked bacon, crumbled
2 tablespoons fresh chives
Place potatoes, broth, butter and garlic in a slow cooker. Cook on low for 6 hours.
Test the potatoes with a fork, and if soft, add cream cheese and sour cream. Mash to desired consistency with a potato masher. Garnish with bacon and chives, and serve hot.
