Peel the potatoes and cut them in quarters. Put in heavy pan and cover with water. Boil until tender, approximately 30 minutes.
Drain and then put in mixer bowl. As you begin to beat them, add milk to desired consistency; and then add up to one stick of butter and about 1/2 package of cream cheese. Again...up to you...but since I then put them in the crock pot, I like them a little creamier to start with!
Pour into greased crock pot and keep on low until you are ready for them!
