Ditch the microwave and embrace the slow cooker for the ultimate baked potato experience. Not only does the slow cooker provide an even, consistent heat, it also allows for a richer flavor infusion in your potatoes. No more worries about uneven cooking or microwave safety concerns. The slow cooker guarantees a flavorful and perfectly cooked baked potato every time.
Slow Cooker Baked Potato Recipe:
Desired number of potatoes
Clean and dry the potatoes. Remove any eyes or imperfections. With a fork, poke holes all around each potato.
Lightly coat each potato with olive oil and sprinkle with salt to your preference.
Tightly wrap each potato in aluminum foil and place them in the slow cooker.
Set the cooker on low and cook for 7-8 hours. Alternatively, if you’re in a bit of a hurry, cook on high for 4-5 hours.
When they’re soft and ready, serve and garnish to your heart’s content – think cheese, sour cream, and crispy bacon.
With this method, baked potatoes become both an effortless and gourmet treat. Enjoy your elevated potato experience!
