Baked Potatoes from the Crock Pot

READY IN: 4hrs 5mins
Recipe by Audrey M

This is a great way to have baked potatoes ready when you come home. I own two crock pots. In one I have my meat and the other I have a vegetable, some type of side or dessert. You can create a whole meal in a crock pot.

Really great and really easy!!! I must be honest, this is the 2nd time I'm making this recipe and this time turned out MUCH better! The first time I made it I had large potatoes and put them in the crock for the 4 hours. At the 4 hour mark, dinner was done and the potatoes were not and they weren't great. This time I rolled them in some olive oil and then salted them before rolling them into tinfoil. I cooked them about 5 hours (they were medium in size) and they were PERFECT!!! Much better than in the microwave and I simply wouldn't take the time to bake potatoes in the oven so this will be my new go-to method. The potatoes were nice and fluffy inside. I followed another reviewers recommendation and checked them about 30-45 minutes before they were due to be done and pierced them with a fork. The ones on top weren't as cooked as the ones in the bottom so I just adjusted their positioning and all were cooked perfect. This couldn't have been easier and made making dinner super easy since I didn't have to even think about these potatoes until they were supposed to be put on the table. I paired this tonight with recipe #242154 and recipe #73021. Wonderful!
