  • 3 pounds yukon gold, russet or red skinned potatoes washed and scrubbed
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 1 cup milk
  • 4-6 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 2 oz cream cheese
  1. Peel your potatoes if desired otherwise just cube and place in slow cooker. Pour in the chicken broth and milk. Sprinkle with garlic and salt. Be sure to leave the garlic on top so it doesn't burn.
  2. Cook on low for 7 hours or high for 3 1/2-4 hours or until potatoes are tender.
  3. When ready to mash add in the cream cheese and mash with a potato masher or an electric mixer. Just be careful not to over mix or your potatoes may become gummy. Taste for salt.
Recipe Notes
  1. I like these best using the Yukon gold potatoes. 
  2. Don't want to use cream cheese no problem!  Substitute in 1/3 cup sour cream and 4 tablespoons melted butter.  
  3. Add in more milk if your potatoes are too dry.
