Remember my last post on baking potatoes? A reader commented on how she used her crock pot for baking potatoes. I thought that genius. And so I tried it. Amazingly simple.
Wash potatoes and pat dry. Poke each potato with a fork once or twice, rub each potato with oil (I used olive oil..this step is optional but I think it makes a better potato), place in crock and cook on high for about 3-4 hours. And Ta-DA! Baked potatoes! And best of all, the house is still cool, from not having to run the oven.
