Garlic Smashed Red Potatoes

Garlic Smashed Red Potatoes
14 Servings

3 lb. small red potatoes
2 cloves garlic, minced
½ cup chicken broth
2 tablespoons olive oil
½ cup chive-and-onion cream cheese spread
½ to ¾ cup milk

  1. Cut potatoes into halves or quarters as necessary to make similar sized pieces; place in 4 to 6 quart slow cooker.  Stir in garlic, salt, water, and oil until potato pieces are covered.
  2. Cover; cook on high setting 3 ½ to 4 ½ hours or until potatoes are tender.
  3. With fork or potato masher, mash potatoes and garlic.  Stir in cream cheese spread until well blended.  Stir in enough milk for soft serving consistency.  Serve immediately, or cover and hold in slow cooker on low setting up to 2 hours.

*If you don't have/don't want to use chicken broth, you can use water and add a tsp of salt
