Making slow cooker mashed potatoes couldn’t be easier. Simply wash and peel the potatoes and cut them into chunks.

Next, place them in the slow cooker with the milk, garlic and dried rosemary. Turn the slow cooker on low and forget about it for 3-4 hours. If you need them cooked faster you can set it to high for 2 hours. Chop the potatoes smaller for faster cooking.
