Honestly, for all the calories that are in it, I was disappointed. Maybe because I did forget a few things...I forgot to add the garlic and also left out the chicken bouillon to accommodate my vegetarian guests. I also didn't add the full recommendation for butter at the end because I ran out, so maybe I added 2 Tbsp in stead of 1/2 cup.
So, just with the sour cream and cream cheese and a little bit of salt & pepper, it left it tasting rich but bland (is that possible?!)
I like the idea of using the crockpot to save time, but really, what's the real point, if you're doing everything you normally would to mashed potatoes (adding the extras and mashing everything up) after boiling the potatoes and just sticking it in the crockpot to keep it warm? It takes the same amount of time...
In the future I'll just stick to my usual milk/salt/ and lots of butter routine. Maybe I'll try the chicken bouillon next time, it does sound yummy, but I'll leave out the cream cheese.
