It Ain't Food Network, But They Eat It....Tuesday!

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!
