DIRECTIONS

  • Halve or quarter potatoes as necessary to make similar size pieces.
  • Place in a 4 to 6 quart crock pot.
  • Add garlic, oil, salt and water; mix well to coat all potato pieces.
  • Cover and cook on HIGH for 3-1/2 to 4-1/2 hours or until potato pieces are tender.
  • With a fork or potato masher, mash potatoes and garlic.
  • Stir in cream cheese until well blended.
  • Stir in enough milk for soft serving consistency.
  • Serve immediately, or cover and hold in slow cooker on LOW setting for up to 2 hours.
  • I have used a 3 ounce piece of cream cheese, cubed, in place of the tub of cream cheese and chives and onions.
