DIRECTIONS

  • Scrub and take any sprouting "eyes" out of your potatoes.
  • Quarter potatoes, place in crock pot (I used medium sized one).
  • Dissolve bouillon powder in water, pour over potatoes and add butter and whole garlic cloves.
  • Cook on high 4 to 5 hours, until fork tender stirring half way in between.
  • Mash potatoes in crock pot, DO NOT drain the chicken broth.
  • Add half and half, butter and cream cheese and mash, mixing together until the potatoes are creamy to your taste, adding more half and half as needed.
  • Stir in salt and pepper to taste.
