These turned out surprisingly well! It's really hot right now, so I'm using my slow cooker at least 3 times week to cook instead of using the oven. I cooked it on high for 4 hours and stirred them every hour. My slow cooker is a new one and I was afraid that the potatoes would burn or dry out (they didn't). My only change was to use about 1/4 cup of butter and 1 cup of chicken broth. I also added three cloves of minced garlic. When they were done, I used my handheld immersion blender directly in the cooker. I also stirred in some leftover caramelized onions and bacon. It tasted creamy and rich even though I used minimal butter. I definitely wouldn't dump these in the slow cooker and leave them all day without testing it out first, because I suspect the potatoes might burn or dry out easily. This is great when you need some extra stove space, or when it's too hot out to use the stove!
