Baked Potatoes in the Crock PotA whole new array of possibilities has opened up to me since learning you can bake potatoes in the Crock Pot.  Simple, yet tasty.  Basic, yet complex.  A weeknight staple that just got easier.  Let’s begin:

  1. Wash potatoes thoroughly.
  2. Gently rub salt on the exterior of the potato then wrap in aluminum foil.
  3. Line Crock Pot with foil or use one of the disposable Crock Pot liners.
  4. Place potatoes in the Crock Pot.  Cover and cook on low 4-6 hours.

That’s it.  Seriously.  As we know, every Crock Pot is different.  The potatoes were done in my pot at about 5 hours but this could be longer or shorter depending on your machine.

Why not bake extra potatoes and use them for:

  • Slice into wedges, cover with olive oil and bake and you get Steak Fries for another weekend night dinner
  • Hollow them out and make Potato Skins for the Football Party
  • Use the “insides” for Potato Pancakes
  • Loaded Baked Potatoes for lunch
  • Fry them up to make Home Fries on Sunday morning
  • Slice in half, top with scrambled eggs and cheese for a yummy breakfast
