Slow Cooker Buttery Garlic Herb Mashed Potatoes
This Slow Cooker Buttery Garlic Herb Mashed Potato recipe remains a classic and fantastic way to serve potatoes. This mashed potato recipe is simple, quick and easy, and can be made by even a rank amateur who has never made potatoes before. And the great part of it is that the new cook will have extraordinary success in doing so, and will take great pride in presenting this simple and delicious dish to the family and friends that come to the dinner table. And come they will. There is almost nothing that smells better than garlic and butter. Yum. But this mashed potato dish gets one better. These potatoes are made with the skins intact, and that is a terrific way to boost the already great nutrition you get from eating potatoes.
Potatoes are a humble vegetable and one that we often do not give much thought to. And that is okay with the potato. It just keeps on giving us great nutrition and working hard for us at every meal. And potatoes are delicious for every meal, from breakfast, through lunch, into dinner, and even as a late night (or mid-afternoon) snack. They work everywhere. As well, potatoes take on just about every kind of seasoning that you can think of, whether it is a hot and spicy African blend, a lemon and pepper Greek dish, or a North American serving of creamy and cold potato salad. They are used to bolster cakes, breads and can be served alone. And there is still more to say about this great vegetable.
Potatoes are nutritional powerhouses. They are chock full of vitamins such as Vitamin C, an important antioxidant. They have more potassium in them than broccoli, spinach or even bananas, which are thought of as the go-to food for potassium enrichment (so now you can add potatoes into that list). Served with the skin on, as here, potatoes become a great source of fiber, and fiber is a component of our daily food plans here in North America where many of us come up short. So potatoes are a great food to eat, and can be eaten every day without issue. This dish blends potatoes with butter and garlic, among other seasonings. The mashed potato recipe recommends melting the butter before adding it to the dish. Consider, once you mince the garlic, adding the garlic into the butter before adding the butter to the potatoes. It will help infuse the dish with fabulous garlic flavor, and cook the garlic a little bit and so soften the flavor of it somewhat. Enjoy this dish tonight with your family, and you will find that you will want to make it again and again.
