Great recipe for a crowd...or if you want to make twice baked potatoes in half the time. Potatoes will be baked and ready by the time you get home, then you can scoop, mash and reassemble.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Scrub/wash potatoes and then dry.
  2. Poke with fork so they don't burst.
  3. If desired, rub potatoes w/optional seasonings, I use a bit of oil and sprinkle them with kosher salt.
  4. Place potatoes in slow cooker. (no foil wrapping necessary).
  5. Cover, cook on low 8-10 hours.
  6. Other tips:.
  7. Wash potatoes night before, for quick prep the next day.
  8. The skins come out a bit soft so be careful when you remove them.
  9. I used russet potatoes and they came out great.

Thanks for the great recipe / idea. I doubled your recipe with as many potatoes as I could fit in the slow cooker on a Friday night and left it for 12 hours and in the morning they were done. I then used the potatoes to make mashed potatoes. This is a TON easier than peeling and boiling and it was almost just as good. This is a great time saver and is something I am going to use for the holidays! Thanks so much again.
