I don't really consider this a recipe (maybe some of you would?) but I thought I would share this with you. Maybe you already know this but it was news to me! I found this on pinterest and could not believe that I had never heard this before! Especially as much as I use my crock pot. (I have a 4 lb. roast in it now. I keep buying them bigger and bigger in the hopes of left overs, but with all 3 boys playing ball now there really is no such thing around here!)
Baked Potatoes in the Crock Pot
I used my 4 quart crock pot for this and it worked perfect. I also used the big baking potatoes instead of little ones. I could fit 5 of the big ones in that crock. Scrub your potatoes like you normally would and dry them with a towel. Don't worry about pricking them with a fork...no need to! Then wrap them in foil and put them in the crock. Cook them on low for 8 hours. Done. How cool is that?
As much as I cook, I have always been horrible with baking a potato. How hard can it be, right? Well, I can never get them done the same time everything else is done. I can't tell you how many times we have eaten almost done potatoes because we have somewhere to go and don't have time for them to cook longer, even though I have cooked them how long my momma said! And in the summer the oven makes the kitchen so hot! I will definitely be making more baked potatoes now!
