Loved these!!! I cooked 2 large potatoes on high for 3.5 hours and I probably should have turned them off at 3. I topped them with a little butter, cottage cheese, steamed broccoli and some fat free cheddar. YUM!!!!! Hubby and them ate these monsters up as our main course this evening and I am ready to make them again very soon! Note that I used margarine on the outside and sprinkled on quite a bit of coarse sea salt, but I'm not sure that it added anything in the end. Thanks for this perfect and simple recipe.
On May 10th.2011 I wanted baked potatoes,but really didn't want to heat up the kitchen.I did a search for crock-pot potatoes,and this particular recipe caught my eye.However there were a couple of extra things that were done to the recipe, after rubbing the potatoes with butter, some salt and pepper were spread over the potatoes.Since my SO likes a softer skin on his baked potatoes, I wrapped them in aluminum foil. They were " baked " for about 7 hours and came out exactly the way they were supposed to. I really enjoyed the way that this recipe turned out and best of all didn't heat up my kitchen. I will most certainly make this again.Thanks for posting and, " Keep Smiling :) "
What an awesome way to make baked potatoes, I am so excited I tried this recipe. I don't bake potatoes very often because they take so long in the oven. Sometimes I pop potatoes into the microwave however; I really do not like to microwave my food...not to mention the fact that I think it changes the texture of the potatoes. I placed 8 potatoes (they were a bit small) in my crock pot before leaving for church this morning. I cooked them on high and they were done by the time we got home. I now have a second batch of potatoes in my crock pot so that I can make a batch of baked potato soup for lunch tomorrow. Thanks for posting this recipe!
