Several weeks ago, I stumbled on a few pins for making baked potatoes in the crock pot. I had never thought about doing it that way before, but it is brilliant!! I can toss potatoes in the crock pot in the morning and, then, at dinner time, I put some toppings out to create a "potato bar," add a salad, and - voila - dinner is done! (Of course, it could also be use as a side dish if, like my husband, you feel a meal isn't complete without meat.)
It's so simple I'm not sure it even qualifies as a recipe, but here's the method. Could not be easier!
Crock Pot Baked Potatoes
Wash 4-6 large potatoes (I use russets). Wrap them in foil and place them in the crock pot. Cook on low for about 6 hours or high for 4 hours. (Cooking times can vary depending not he size and number of potatoes.)
Add your favorite toppings and enjoy!
