In this week’s Mom Hacks, Hy-Vee dietician Brooke Rush shows us how to prepare crockpot mashed potatoes and green bean casserole. 

Crockpot mashed potatoes 

5-10 golden potatoes

1 1/2 cups of 1 percent low-fat milk 

1 1/2 of chicken bone broth

Minced garlic

A small portion of salt and pepper

Mix and warm on high for four hours, then blend 

Green bean casserole
