Now you can eat them just like this, soft and buttery with brown edges and onion flavor


or you can add a little milk and sour cream and give them a quick mash with an immersion blender or hand mixer right there in the slow cooker


Mix lightly, keeping some lumps for interest and texture- overmixing can make them pasty


They turn golden in color from the brown butter, red skins and onion soup mix

I mentioned that next time I might try seasoning with herbs such as rosemary and got a resounding “No! Don’t change a thing!” from HHjr…

He’s not one to rave, so I considered that a big success  👍
