  • 5

    lbs sierra gold potatoes or red potatoes, diced with peel

  • 1

    cup water

  • 1

    cup butter, cut into chunks

  • 1

    tablespoon salt, plus

  • ¾

    teaspoon ground black pepper

  • 1⅓

    cups milk, warmed


1. Place the potatoes, water, and butter into a slow cooker. 2. Season with salt and pepper. 3. Cover, and cook on High for 4 hours. 4. Do not remove the excess water from slow cooker. This adds to the creamy texture. 5. Mash potatoes with a masher or electric beater, adding the desired amount of warm milk to achieve a creamy consistency. 6. Keep warm on low until serving. 7. Potatoes keep consistency for a couple of hours after mashing. Just keep the lid on the slow cooker and serve directly from there.
