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.
- 10 -12 small baking potatoes
- aluminum foil
- Stab potatoes with fork.
- Wrap each in foil.
- Fill crock pot with potatoes.
- Cover and cook on High 2 1/2- 4 hours.
- Do not add water.
- Cooking time depends on how big your potatoes are.
- Use your best judgement.
- It doesn't hurt to cook them for the 4 hours.
- For large potatoes, I have cooked five to six on Low for 8 to 10 hours and they turn out perfectly.
Great. I cooked 6 medium Yukon golds. Sprayed the foil with a bit of cooking spray and then salted the outside of the potatoes before wrapping them. Yum, this is so easy!
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 Sauteed Spinach, Garlic, and Mushrooms and Rosemary - Merlot Flank Steak. Wonderful!
Yum! I stumbled upon this recipe when I was looking for easy crock pot recipes for a friend. As soon as I read it, I went, "Well, duh! Why didn't I ever think of that? Baked potatoes without heating up the house!" I did six large potatoes, rubbed with olive oil and seasonings, on high for 5 hours, and they're wonderful! Thank you Audrey! :)
