Crockpot Baked Potatoes... REALLY


Baking your potatoes in the crockpot is so easy and they come out amazing!

 Wash your potatoes, poke them, wrap them in tin foil and cook them on low all day in a slow cooker.  It's that simple!!

They come out perfect and soft and delicious!  We have baked potatoes for dinner probably once a week.  We top them with butter, light sour cream and cheddar cheese.  Sometimes ham and broccoli will be potato toppers too.  With fruit on the side we consider it a meal.  Sweet potatoes work great too!

I love this. Never thought to put them in the crockpot. I would love to have a baked potato party - where you serve baked potatoes and all kinds of toppings. I think that would be a good wintertime get together with friends. The crockpot idea would make it so much easier

I wish I could remember to use my crock pot for more than just cooking a huge roast. I have 3 of them! sheesh!

What a good idea! I'm going to have to try that once all of the potatoes that I have baked in my fridge are gone! I love having baked potatoes on hand to eat!
