Serves 1
  • Ingredients:
  • • 5 pounds Yukon Gold potatoes, cut into 2-Inch pieces
  • • 1 cup whole milk
  • • 1 cup half & half
  • • 2 cups chicken or vegetable broth
  • • 12 peeled garlic cloves
  • • 1 stick (4 ounces) unsalted butter
  • • 1/2 cup crème fraiche
  • • Salt & freshly ground pepper


  1. Place the potatoes, milk, broth and garlic cloves in your slow cooker, with the garlic sitting on top. Season liberally with salt and pepper. Cover and cook for 4-5 hours on high or 7-8 hours on low. When the potatoes are very tender, add the butter and crème fraiche and mash directly in your slow cooker; the potatoes should be smashed and rustic. Taste and adjust the seasoning.

I like to leave the skins on the Yukon Gold potatoes, for flavor and texture, and because I like a rustic smashed potato. Peel the potatoes, if you like, for a creamier texture.
