Ingredients
3
pounds baking potatoes (such as russet or Yukon gold), peeled and cut into 2-inch pieces
6
1
bay leaf
2
14 ounce can seasoned chicken broth with roasted garlic
1
cup whole milk
1/4
cup butter
1
teaspoon salt
 
Freshly ground black pepper
 
Bay leaves (optional)
Directions
  1. In a 3-1/2- or 4-quart slow cooker, combine potatoes, garlic, and bay leaf. Pour broth over potato mixture.
  2. Cover and cook on low-heat setting for 6 to 8 hours or on high-heat setting for 3 to 4 hours.
  3. Drain potatoes in a colander over a bowl to catch the cooking liquid. Remove and discard bay leaf. Return potatoes to slow cooker. Mash potatoes with a potato masher.
  4. In a small saucepan, heat milk and butter until steaming and butter almost melts. Add milk mixture, salt, and enough of the reserved cooking liquid to mashed potatoes to reach desired consistency.*
