How to Bake a Potato in the Slow Cooker
Makes 4 potatoes
4 russet potatoes
Wash and scrub the potatoes. Poke the potatoes with a fork a couple of times. Lay the potato on a piece of foil that is big enough to wrap it in. Lightly brush the potato with olive oil and sprinkle with salt. Wrap the potato tightly in the foil. Repeat with remaining potatoes.
Arrange the foil wrapped potatoes in the slow cooker, making sure they touching the bottom of the crock. It is ok if the potatoes are touching each other.
Bake 8 to 10 hours on low or 4 to 5 hours on high. Remove the potatoes from the foil when done. Split them open and top with your favorite toppings. I like to put cooked broccoli and cheese on mine. These potatoes can make a great easy meal on busy days. Other ideas for toppings are can chili and cheese. You can also cook sweet potatoes and beets with this method. I made beets the other day in my slow cooker and my husband said they taste so much better than can beets.
