Ingredients
  • 3 pounds Yukon Gold potatoes peeled & chopped
  • 1-2 bulbs garlic the top ¼ cut off
  • ¼ cup chicken broth
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper optional
  • 4 tablespoons butter unsalted
  • ¼-½ cup milk
  • Garnish: fresh chopped chives or parsley extra butter
Instructions
  1. Spray a slow-cooker with cooking spray and set it to HIGH heat.
  2. Peel and cut the potatoes into 1-inch cubes. Rinse the potatoes under cold water (this removes some of the starch). Transfer the potatoes to the slow-cooker and nestle the garlic on top of the potatoes. Drizzle the chicken broth on top and sprinkle the potatoes with salt and pepper.
  3. Cook on HIGH 2-3 hours or on LOW 3-4 hours or until potatoes are tender.
  4. Remove and mash the garlic. Add the garlic and butter to the potatoes and mash the potatoes until smooth. Try not to over mix the potatoes or they will turn gummy. Mix in the milk to the desired consistency.
  5. Garnish with chopped chives or parsley and pats of butter.
  6. Enjoy!

MolliE
Do you roast the garlic before adding it to the slow Cooker? Excited to make thEse for thanksgiving!
    Becky Hardin
    Hi Mollie! Great question. You can put the garlic in raw and it will roast in the slow cooker. Hope you love the recipe!
Shari Giarraputo
I was wondering if once the timer is done. Can I leave the cover on and Leave it on warm for a few hours before I can serve it or make it closer to dinner time. Can I use a potato ricer or is a hand masher best? Thank you so much.
    Becky Hardin
    For the time, that should definitely work. Just stir every so often to keep it nice and fresh. For the masher question, its all about consistency. We like ours with a masher but if you like the finer ricer feel/taste, go for it!! Hope you love the recipe and have a fab Thanksgiving :)
      Shari Giarraputo
