Baked potatoes


Source: A Year of Crockpotting

So this is pretty cool — you can make baked potatoes in the crockpot! This really came in handy for me the other day when we had 40 clove garlic chicken for dinner. I needed a side dish, but didn’t feel like taking 20 or more minutes to prepare something after work when our main course was sitting there, ready and waiting for us. So, since I have two crockpots, I set them both to work, and our complete dinner was ready for us when we got home!

I actually enjoyed these potatoes more than traditional oven-baked potatoes. They were so much softer. At first, Rick said the texture tasted a little off, but the more he ate, the more he liked it!

I made 4, and it just barely covered the bottom, but  you can stack them as high as you need them to go. Do not add water. Cover and cook on low for 10 hours. Top with your favorite toppings and enjoy!

    I love this idea. How great is it come home from a long day and the baked potatoes already be done.
