  • 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


  • Spray a slow-cooker with cooking spray and set it to HIGH heat.
  • 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.
  • Cook on HIGH 2-3 hours or on LOW 3-4 hours or until potatoes are tender.
  • 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.
  • Garnish with chopped chives or parsley and pats of butter.
  • Enjoy!
