Crock Pot Baked Potatoes
Crock Pot Baked Potatoes—how to bake potatoes in your slow cooker. Easy method with no cleanup. Perfect for weeknight dinners or to feed a crowd.
–6 russet baking potatoes
–3 teaspoons olive oil
1/2 teaspoon per potato
–1 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt
1/4 teaspoon per potato
Toppings: Freshly grated Roundy’s Cheese
I used extra-sharp cheddar, chopped chives, cooked and crumbled bacon; Roundy’s Non-Fat Plain Greek Yogurt
Scrub the potatoes and dry completely. For each potato, tear off a piece of aluminum foil large enough to wrap around the potato completely. Prick the potato all over with a fork, then place it in the center of the foil. Drizzle with 1/2 teaspoon olive oil and sprinkle with 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt. Rub the salt and oil over the surface of the potato, then wrap tightly with the foil sheet. Place in your slow cooker.
Cook the potatoes on high for 4 to 5 hours or low for 8 to 10 hours, until soft. Do not overcook, or the potatoes may become soggy. Remove and carefully unwrap (the potatoes will be hot). Split and top with cheese, chives, bacon, and Greek yogurt as desired.
