  • 3 lb Yukon Gold Potatoes
  • 1-2 cups chicken broth
  • 1 tablespoon seasoned salt
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • ¼ cup sour cream
  • 2 tablespoons cream cheese
  • Milk as needed
  • 1 tablespoon dried herbs of choice I used Italian seasoning
  • Additional seasoned salt to taste (about 1-2 teaspoons)


  • You can peel the potatoes or leave the skins on and clean them really well. (I like leaving my skins on.) Cut potatoes into quarters.
  • Place potatoes in the bottom of a 6-quart crockpot. Add chicken broth just to cover the potatoes. Cover and cook on high 3-4 hours (mine took exactly 3 hours but all crockpots cook differently.) Potatoes are done and ready to be mashed when they fall easily off a fork when pierced.
  • Drain the potatoes (reserve some potato stock if you want to use instead of milk when mashing).
  • Add the butter, sour cream, and cream cheese and mash until your desired consistency, adding milk as needed. (I like my potatoes a bit chunky and less creamy, but everyone likes them their own way.) Add the herbs and more seasoned salt, to taste.
  • Serve hot. Store leftovers in an airtight container for up to 3 days.
