Crock Pot Baked Potatoes
Did you know you can make baked potatoes in the crock pot? I think I knew this, but I had never tried it before until last week. Mind blown. Crock Pot Baked Potatoes are my new favorite thing!
I love that I can pop them in during the day and they do their thing without me having to be around. This perfect for you working parents. I always wanted baked potatoes during the week – I mean I love a great Hasselback Potato but they take a while to make!
Make baked potatoes in your slow cooker! No more waiting around when time is limited during the weeknight. I say “when time is limited” but really, when isn’t time limited during the week?
Also, for those of you that tend to stash your crock pot away for the summer don’t do that. It’s the perfect tool for cooking your meals during the summer without heating up your kitchen.
I think the crock pot has become our forgotten friend not only during the summer months, but since it’s new faster sister came onto the market, the Instant Pot.
I’m going back to my roots and pulling the crock pot out because I love how handy it is to this day.
Slow Cooker Baked Potatoes
I’m going to be making these baked potatoes in that handy crock pot a lot too because apparently Miss K loves baked potatoes. Seriously. Who would have thought?
I was making these and I’m like I’m doubting the fact that my children will touch these, but we will test it out.
When I unwrapped them from the foil Miss K’s entire face lit up. Mom I LOOOOOOVE those. I raised my eyebrows thinking I’ll believe it when I see you eat those.
She had me slice it in half and then put butter on it. She then picked up a half of it and eat it, skin on and everything.
My mind was blown.
I love serving up homemade barbecues with them. I skip the bun and pile it on my potato with a little sour cream and cheese. The BEST!
Also, question for you, do you want my barbecue recipe? It’s literally so easy I don’t know if I can it a recipe. All I do is add ketchup, mustard, brown sugar and vinegar to hamburger. It’s the barbecue I grew up on!
