  • 2 pounds red potatoes washed and chopped into 2-inch pieces, (you don't need to peel them)
  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • ½ cup sour cream (or plain greek yogurt)
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh parsley (or 2 teaspoons dried parsley flakes)
  • ½ teaspoon dried or fresh basil
  • ¼ teaspoon dried oregano
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  • ¼ cup milk


  • Add chopped potatoes to a greased slow cooker. Cover and cook on high for 2-3 hours or on low or 5-6 hours on low.
  • When potatoes are cooked and fork-tender, add all remaining ingredients (let the butter melt for a couple of minutes). Use a hand mixer or a masher to mash the potatoes. (*see note) Serve warm.

**This recipe can easily be doubled for large groups - just increase the cooking time by 1-2 hours.
**Although I have never had this happen to my potatoes, I have heard some people complain of "gluey" potatoes after mashing. Click HERE for my tips on making perfect, never-gluey mashed potatoes!
