This is a similiar recipe that I have used for awhile. The only changes I would recommend is after washing the potatoes rub the skin with butter and wrap in aluminum foil. Place in crockpot and cook as stated. This way you can have your potatoes ready when your meal is done.

I used this method with sweet potatoes, and they were fantastic! Soft and fluffly and bright orange. I did not stand them up on end, just set them in the crock. Oh, and I sprayed them with olive oil spray before cooking. Thanks so much for the method, I'll be using it again and again!

My taters turned a brown/beige color, I used russet potatoes & cooked them in foil, the end result was not the pretty fluffy white that I get from baking them in the oven.

I love the concept of this recipe. I wrapped my potatoes in foil. I'm going to do this again! Roxygirl in Colo.

This is a recipe that I have making for 10 years. Rubbing potatoes with a little crisco makes a great result. This is also a great way to take a portable supper---take bowls of sour cream, cheese, salsa, etc.
