DIRECTIONS

  • In crock pot, add 2 cups of water and potatoes.
  • Cook on high for 1-2 hours or until potatoes are very soft to touch.
  • Water should be almost evaporated and potatoes will mash when gently touched. If you have a lot of water leftover, drain it off. If you have under 1/2 cup, go ahead and leave it. This will help keep your potatoes from over drying while waiting for dinner to be done- so you can make them ahead of time.
  • Add cream, butter, garlic and mash well using hand mixer or mashing utensil, right there in the crock pot.
  • Add salt and pepper to taste.
  • Keep potatoes on medium or low for up to 2 hours, or until ready to serve.
