This is probably a no brainer, but my method for making corn in the slow cooker seemed like a no brainer too, and yet, I got a huge response from it.
Sometimes, I don’t want to heat up my kitchen so I use my slow cooker for everything…even “baking” potatoes. It is so easy and they taste like they were baked (instead of microwaved…which I know nothing about, um…I don’t, really?!?!)
After you make baked potatoes in a crock pot, you can eat them as is for a simple side dish, or use them to create other recipes. I made a baked potato bar for supper. I set out all sorts of toppings and everyone made their own. Super easy supper! For lunch the next day, my daughter and I used the slow cooker baked potatoes to make Homemade Mashed Potatoes.
How to Make Easy Slow Cooker Baked Potatoes
You will need:
Spray the inside of your slow cooker with non-stick cooking spray.
Clean potatoes really well, rub with olive oil and then coat with kosher salt. Place in slow cooker.
Cook on high for about 4-6 hours. Rotate them occasionally so that each side has a chance to touch the cooker (helps with even cooking).
