Garlic Smashed Red Potatoes

This recipe is really good.... especially for potato lovers, (like myself). I would ONLY use red potatoes for this recipe though. Enjoy!

3 lb. small (2-3 inch) red potatoes
4 garlic cloves, minced
2 TBSP olive oil
1 tsp salt
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup chive and onion cream cheese spread (from 8 oz. container)
1/4 to 1/2 cup milk

  1. Halve or quarter potatoes as necessary to make similar sized pieces. Place in 4-6 quart slow cooker. Add garlic, oil, salt and water; mix well to coat all potato pieces.
  2. Cover; cook on high setting for 3 1/2 to 4 1/2 hours or until potatoes are tender.
  3. With fork or potato masher, mash potatoes and garlic. Add cream cheese; stir until well blended. Stir in enough milk for soft serving consistency. Serve immediately, or cover and hold in slow cooker on low setting for up to 2 hours.
Makes 14 servings.

Sounds yummy! I have made garlic mashed potatoes many times but not with the cream. May it try as I have some red potatoes left. :)
Thanks for sharing many delicious recipes!
