Recipe from


  • 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

  • 1teaspoon salt (more salt? looks like an error)

  • 1 1teaspoons garlic powder (optional)

  • 3teaspoon ground black pepper

  • 1 1cups milk, warmed


  • Place the potatoes, water, and butter into a slow cooker.

  • Season with salt, garlic powder, and pepper.

  • Cover, and cook High for 4 hours.

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

  • Mash potatoes with a masher or electric beater, adding the desired amount of warm milk to achieve a creamy consistency.

  • Keep warm on low until serving.

  • My slow cooker has a warm setting which it automatically goes to once cooking time has been reached. Potatoes keep consistency for a couple of hours after mashing. Just keep the lid on the slow cooker and serve directly from there.
