5 lbs sierra gold potatoes or 5 lbs red potatoes, diced with peel

1 cup water

1 cup butter, cut into chunks

1 tablespoon salt, plus

1⁄4 teaspoon salt or more to your liking

1 1⁄4 teaspoons garlic powder (optional)

3⁄4 teaspoon ground black pepper

1 1⁄3 cups milk, warmed


1. Place the potatoes, water, and butter into a slow cooker. Season with salt, garlic powder, and pepper. Cover, and cook High for 4 hours.

2. Do not remove the excess water from slow cooker. This adds to the creamy texture.
