The dish itself was okay. Definitely nothing to write home about but it was all the work I had to do that makes me not want to give this more than 2 stars. When I saw the good rating, I had high hopes. I personally thought it was just like the box stuff. Didn't see any huge difference. And the fact that you have to cook the potatoes and mash them with other ingredients BEFORE putting in the slow cooker doesn't make any sense. Before I tried this recipe, I said to myself "Wait a minute, it looks like mashed potatoes are done in step #1.Then why put it in the slow cooker when it's already done? And then I thought MAYBE putting it in the slow cooker would actually make some difference in the flavor or something so I decided to give it a try. Nope, there's no difference at all in the flavor. I think I actually liked the flavor of "before slow cooker" better. It just doesn't make any sense that you make mashed potatoes and then put that done dish in slow cooker for more time. Why? It's just so redundant. Now I have one more big dish to wash and thinking of all the work and time I wasted to make mediocre mashed potatoes just upsets me so much.
