Once potatoes are soft, mash them by using a potato masher or an electric handheld mixer.

Tips for making the best slow cooker ranch potatoes:

  • Try to avoid over-mixing the mashed potatoes with an electric mixer. I found out the hard way that they become very sticky when they are mixed too much.
  • If you like your mashed potatoes super creamy, feel free to add an extra 1/2 cup of sour cream to the mix.
  • Want even more flavor? I sometimes throw cheese and bacon into the mix. Then I’ll add a little more cheese on top when they’re done. There’s really no such thing as too much cheese! 🧀

The ranch flavor really makes this recipe!

Some of my family members aren’t necessarily huge mashed potato fans but they loved these! This recipe really packs the flavor thanks to a handy ranch packet (I mean, who doesn’t have one of these lying around somewhere in their pantry!) and tons of creaminess.

It’s a great change up from traditional mashed potatoes and so easy thanks to the slow cooker!

Here’s what my teammate Jenna had to say after making these Crockpot ranch mashed potatoes:

“These potatoes were easy to make and I had plenty of leftovers for the next day! I love the use of the ranch packet, it’s such a great hack that I would have never thought of. My entire family loved them and I’m adding them to my weekly side dish rotation list! I think the sour cream and cream cheese are the secret to them being so creamy.”

    Do you usually cook the potatoes for 3 or 4 hours? It says 4 in the directions but 3 for total cook time?

    • Jennifer (Hip Sidekick)

      It’s for four hours! We got that updated, TheQueenBee! Thanks for letting us know!
