These have totally changed the way I make baked potatoes!!  I honestly don’t know why it has taken me this long to try this method!

Well, the biggest reason was I really didn’t think you could get a fluffy baked potato from a slow cooker.  I was afraid it would turn out gummy and dense.

But, I was pleasantly surprised!  They had soft and fluffy interiors and were so tender.  However, if you are looking for the crispy skins you’ll want to bake them in the oven instead.

But, if you’re looking for an easy fool proof way to have baked potatoes ready when you come from work this is it!  If you have 2 crockpots you can put your meat in one and these potatoes in another, then add a simple side salad and BAM you have dinner done in 10 minutes!!!

This will also be a perfect way to get baked potatoes with out turning on your oven and heating up your house during the summer.

Your welcome! 🙂
