Have you ever tried...

Baking potatoes in your crock pot? Well if not then you are missing out. I did it the other night...FABULOUS!! All you have to do is wash and prick your potatoes with a fork, wrap them in tin foil and put them in the crock pot. The instructions I found said 8-10 hours on low. I don't think mine took that long (in fact I know they didn't) though I cooked them on low a few hours and then on high and my crock pot seems to be "special" and works at an alarmingly fast rate. Anyway they were prefect. This is what I love most about his method:
1. You don't have to heat the oven for 3 small potatoes
2. On a hot day you don't have to have the oven on at all
3. It uses a lot less electricity
4. With a little advanced planning you can have baked potatoes for dinner after being gone the majority of the day.
Something new to try. I am sold.
Pin It!

  1. Wow, I love this idea! I'm always looking for new ways to use my crock-pot, AND I never bother baking potatoes because it seems like such a pain. Great tip!

  2. Great way to have baked potatoes during the week and I LOVE not having to heat up the kitchen for so long! Thanks!
