Slow cooker recipes are so convenient! Making baked potatoes in a Crock Pot is easy and they turned out great!
For 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.
Mix 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.
Brush the potatoes with the olive oil mixture and sprinkle with sea salt.
Tightly wrap the foil around the potatoes and put them in your slow cooker. Bake for high for 4 hours or on low for 6-8 hours.
One 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!
