“This one's not for the crockpot! It roasts inside of your oven in one of those oven cooking bags. Smashed potatoes are unpeeled-if you don't like the peel then remove it and you will have regular mashed potatoes. There was no amount given for the milk or butter for the potatoes, just add until you get your desired consistency.”
