Creamy Crockpot Mashed Potatoes

These are the creamiest, easiest, and tastiest mashed potatoes I think I have ever had! I was watching food network one day while I was at the gym (since we don’t have cable here) and the host was talking about how he loves creamy mashed potatoes and people often ask him if he lightens them ever. He said, “No, never. This is how I like my mashed potatoes and I would rather have them they way I like them and maybe have a little less instead of needing to eat three pound of ‘light’ potatoes just to feel satisfied.” I think this is so true! If you have troubles stopping with just a serving, try putting the serving of potatoes on your plate and then putting the rest in the refrigerator. This little trick could help a lot, because if you really aren’t hungry, you probably won’t go through the hassle of warming up more potatoes. For me, if the tasty food is sitting on the table in case someone wants seconds, I will pick at it even if I am full…if it is in the refrigerator, I usually never go for seconds. Just a thought 🙂

Ingredients
-2 pound of red potatoes, halved, NOT peeled
-1 cup of fat free sour cream
-1 tbsp Dijon mustard
-2 tsp garlic
-pinch of salt and pepper

Directions
Toss the potatoes in the remaining ingredients in a separate bowl. Add to a 3-4 serving crock pot and cook on low for 4-5 hours, or until the potatoes are soft enough to mash. Mash with a potato masher and enjoy!
