HOW TO MAKE: CROCKPOT baked potatoes


Crockpot Baked Potatoes

These baked potatoes are so easy to make, especially on days when you don’t want to heat up your kitchen by baking them in the oven. All you need to do is cook them in the slow cooker for a few hours until they’re soft. The result is tender baked potatoes that still have crispy skins!

How long do potatoes take in the slow cooker? Baked potatoes take between 4-7 hours depending if you are cooking them on HIGH or LOW heat in the slow cooker.

Wash potatoes and poke holes in them. 


Brush each potato with olive oil and sprinkle with salt.


Wrap each potato in aluminum foil and cook in slow cooker.


Cook until potatoes are softened. Serve with your favorite toppings and enjoy!

What should I put on top of a baked potato?

Some traditional topping ideas are butter, sour cream, chives, chopped bacon and dried parsley. If you’re doing a chili baked potato, try ground beef chili, shredded cheddar cheese and sour cream. For a Mexican Baked Potato, you can add salsa, black or pinto beans, fried corn, cheddar cheese or queso, guacamole or sour cream.
