Slow Cooker Baked PotatoesFor our second week of Crocktober, I’m sharing a recipe for Slow Cooker Baked Potatoes! I’ve seen several recipes online for making baked potatoes in a Crock Pot and finally got around to trying it. What I loved about it that I can put the potatoes in the slow cooker in the morning and they are ready at dinner time. Just make some chicken on the grill to go with it or have the baked potato as dinner.

Hasselback Baked PotatoesMix together 1/4 cup olive oil, 1/2 teaspoon garlic, 1/2 teaspoon Cajun seasoning and 4 cranks from a pepper grinder. Wash and dry potatoes. Place them on a large piece of foil (enough to completely wrap the potato. I cut small slices in the top of the potatoes with the hope that the seasonings would soak into them, giving the potatoes more flavor. If you decided not to make the small slices, be sure to poke the potato, all around, with a fork.

Slow Cooker Baked Potato RecipeOne of my sisters told me that her husband’s work had a baked potato bar for the employees in the break room. They made the baked potatoes in a slow cooker and then left them in there to keep them warm. As the employees went on break, they could just grab a baked potato, add the toppings and enjoy! What a great party idea!

    Hi Tonia, this definitely looks like a recipe I’m going to try. Do I understand correctly, no water is used in the slow cooker. Tx Dezzi

    Do you wrap the potatoes individually, or together as a whole in one piece of foil? I am definitely doing this. Thanks for sharing.

    Hi Tonia, I was wandering if you used garlic salt or garlic powder? And also could you use melted butter instead of the olive oil? Just curious ๐Ÿ™‚ Thanks so much can’t wait to try these my family will go crazy over these:) ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚

      Hi Joann,
      I used garlic salt but garlic powder would work as well but you would want to use less of it. I’m not sure about the melted butter but it sure seems like it would work the same way. Enjoy!

    Your baked potato’s do look good & there for I am very willing to try them. My family loves baked potato’s.
    I’m sorry for being so blunt.
