Peel (if desired) and cube up your potatoes and place them in your crock pot
Pour chicken broth over all your potatoes
Cover and cook on high for 2-4 hours or low for 4-8 hours, they are ready to be mashed when they are fork tender
Mash potatoes with your minced garlic, sour cream, cream cheese, butter, bacon, cheese, salt and pepper
Return to crock pot to keep warm until serving, garnish with a reserved bacon and cheese, if desired.
As with regular boiling of potatoes, the smaller you cut them the faster they will cook up. So if you need the longer cook time, cut your potatoes up into bigger cubes. Do you only have a couple hours? Cut your potatoes into smaller, thinner cubes. Just make sure you adjust your cooking time accordingly.
Make sure you watch this closely the first time you make it in your crock pot. I know we say this all the time, but we really can't stress this enough. A good recipe can go really wrong if it is under or overcooked. Each crock pot cooks so differently, and, as I said above, the size of the cubes you cut your potatoes can greatly affect your cooking time.

All slow cookers cook differently, so cooking times are always a basic guideline. Recipes should always be tested first in your own slow cooker and time adjusted as needed.
