Slow Cooker “Baked” Potatoes

Written By: Chris - Sep• 26•15

I recently caught this tip on the weekend show “The Kitchen” and I wondered, why didn’t I think of that?  I didn’t want to run the oven the other day as it was hot outside and I had my son Andrew coming over for dinner.  He’s a pretty good eater and appreciates a good meal, so I like to find some fillers too.  Who doesn’t have potatoes on hand?  This is a super easy way to bake potatoes without heating up the kitchen; and there is little to no work!  Give this method a try.  You won’t be disappointed!

Scrub the potatoes well and prick each one with a fork several times.

Rub each potatoes with olive oil and sprinkle with salt.  Then wrap each potato tightly in individual foil squares.

Place the potatoes into a slow cooker and cover.  Cook on High for about four to five hours, until they are tender.  That’s it!

We enjoyed our easy “baked potatoes” along side of a pork tenderloin and asparagus spears that I cooked on the grill, that was topped with my pork cranberry gravy and mushrooms!  Bill paired this meal with a refreshing 2013 Chardonnay by Matthiasson; Sonoma Coast.  Wonderful!

Enjoy!
Cheers!
