Easy and delicious. I cooked the potatoes for 8 hours. They were perfect. I used red potatoes.
Great idea! Baking potatoes in the crockpot is easy and no fuss. In the summer, you can still have baked potatoes without heating up the kitchen and in the winter it saves room in the oven for other things! I love recipes I can throw in and walk away from!
This recipe is a great find. Our potatoes were so fluffy and light. I used olive oil and see salt. plus I added about a 1/4 C.of water to the pot. My crockpot instructions state that it should always have some liquid in the pot. I will use this recipe often. Thanks for posting!
I used 2 good-size Yukon Gold potatoes and they cooked up perfectly for me. I stored 1 in the fridge to slice and fry for breakfast and served the other for dinner topped with Old-Time Hot Dog Sauce #342751 and shredded pepperjack cheese. Easy and delicious. Thanks for posting Danny. Made for Choose Your Event Party.
How easy is this! I love baked potatoes. I also used rather large baking potatoes and came out perfect after 8 hours on low. I put these in before I went to work and enjoyed loaded baked potatoes with our dinner. I never thought to use the crock pot. Thank you for sharing!
Dismal, partially-baked potatoes after nine hours. Not pleasant. I'll bake them in the oven as usual next time. Not fluffy when split, but dense, overly moist.
Perfect! I used HUGE potatoes & they were cooked perfectly after 8 hours on low. As another reviewer said, I never would have thought to do this but what a great way to save time & free up oven space!
I never would have figured out on my own that you can cook amazing baked potatoes in the crock pot. So THANK YOU so much for posting. They turned out perfect, 8 medium potatoes cooked on high for 2.5 hours. I don't know if I ever need to do the oven method again.
Even though it was an easy way to cook my potatoes, they seemed more 'boiled' than 'baked'. The skins were too soft and moist and the inside wasn't as fluffy as a true baked potato. The convenience of the recipe and the fact of not using the oven in the middle of the summer are big pluses though. Thanks!
I can't believe I never thought of doing baked potatoes this way! I have spent so many years not having baked potatoes during the week because I donâ€™t like them from the microwave! But no more! I used 8 potatoes, washed them with a vegetable brush and dried them well. I did use a fork to poke holes all over the potato surface then put about Â½ cup olive oil in a bowl, about Â½ cup kosher salt on a plate. I rolled each potato the olive oil, then the salt, then wrapped each potato with foil. I had read somewhere that the potatoes do better if you stand them on end in the crock pot, so I tried that too (don't know if it helps or not!). It was so great to come home from work to delicious baked potatoes - all we had to do was make a salad and grill the steaks and we had a perfect dinner! Thanks Danny Beason for the great method!
