This delicious dish is pure brilliance! New Red Potatoes and roasted are cooked until tender in a crockpot, then mashed with cream and cheese, tossed into a baking dish, and cooked until golden crust forms. This may become your most favorite way to eat mashed potatoes! If you’ve never purchased roasted garlic, you can find it in the Olive Bar section of most grocery stores. Alternately, this dish can be made with chopped fresh garlic, as well.
