Definitely odd not adding water to do mash but it worked and tasted really good.

Just scale down potatoes if you need to in order to fit them in šŸ™‚

Iā€™m only cooking for one. Would this work in a 1.5 litre slow cooker?

How much water do you use to cook them ? Iā€™m assuming you just cover the potatoes with water then drain and add in milk and butter after they are cooked ?
