Crockpot Baked Potatoes

I had read you could cook baked potatoes in the crockpot, but I was skeptical about whether it worked.  Since baked potatoes were on my meal plan for Thursday night, I decided to test whether you could cook them in the crockpot.  I am no longer a skeptic because it really worked.  My hubby even told me that they were delicious.

Stars of the recipe:

  • russet potatoes – (I didn’t put a quantity because it depends on how many you want to make.)
  • extra virgin olive oil
  • salt


  1. Wash the potatoes and then poke the potatoes.
  2. Wrap each individual potato in foil and then place it in the crockpot.
  3. Put about 1 to  Tbsp. of water in the bottom of the crockpot.
  4. Turn the crockpot on low and cook the potatoes for about 4.5 hours.
  5. When they are finished, unwrap them and put them in a bowl.
  6. Douse them with Extra Virgin Olive Oil (EVOO) to lightly coat them.
  7. Sprinkle them with salt.
  8. Enjoy with your favorite baked potato toppings.
