The intro to the article on this website reads "These mashed potatoes will change your life. Creamy, tons of flavor, and seriously the easiest mashed potatoes you will ever make--you'll never go back to boiling and smashing!" After trying the recipe this Thanksgiving, I can't argue with a single part of that statement.
I first found the recipe on Pinterest (where, apparently, I find all of my recipes) and then traced it back to Creme de la Crumb. This recipe was incredibly easy and, as mashed potatoes go, delicious. To be honest, I've always thought that mashed potatoes were kind of bland, but these actually had a nice bit of flavor to them (probably due to the sour cream and garlic). The recipe also suggests topping them with cheese and bacon or other yummy things, which I would definitely be willing to do in the future (but didn't do at Thanksgiving, because hello, my table was already overflowing).
My only complaint was that the recipe yielded WAY too many potatoes for Ben and I to eat by ourselves, and while the kids did eat tiny helpings, they didn't even make a dent in the massive Mountain of Crock Pot Mashed Potatoes, so in the future, I'd either cut down the recipe or make sure to make this at a time when we were sharing dinner with friends. They did reheat okay for the first couple of days but got kind of dry after that (or maybe that was just in my mind, because I simply couldn't stomach any more potato).
Here is a link to the original recipe, complete with tantalizing pictures. Here's my copy for my recipe book, with full credit given to Creme de la Crumb:
