Slow Cooker Loaded Baked Potatoes

Slow Cooker Loaded Baked Potatoes
Today I have some baked potatoes for you, but not regular baked potatoes, super easy, no mess slow cooker baked potatoes. Baked potatoes are pretty easy to make in the oven but sometimes you don't have access to an oven or your oven is too full of other things, or you just don't want to have your oven on and the slow cooker is the perfect alternative way of baking them. You pretty much just need to scrub the potatoes, add a bit of oil, salt and pepper, wrap in foil and cook in the slow cooker! That's less than 5 minutes of effort and some no attention required slow cooker time and you have great baked potatoes every time! I like to make a meal out of them by topping them with cheddar cheese, sour cream, bacon and chives!

Other than the length of cooking time, I fail to see how slow cooker baked potatoes are any "easier" than those cooked in an oven. The prep time is the same, and you still have to check the potatoes' level of doneness, so there's the same time commitment and the start and end of the cooking process.

I have been baking potatoes this way for several years. I also enjoy baking sweet potatoes in my slow cooker. Great recipe, Kevin. I have tried several of your recipes. Thanks.

Hi. When I do potatoes this way they go quite brown on the insides. Is this normal? Your potato looks a normal colour.

Sure all you have to do is put them in the microwave (with out the foil )2 min on each side. Put them in foil then and keep in warm oven
