    I’ve crockpotted my baked potatoes forever . . . . and so much better than any other method. Only thing I do different than this recipe is a light coating of butter on the skin before wrapping nice and tight in foil. And, stack smaller ones to the inside/middle of the pot . . . for more even cooking of all sizes. All day on low and they come out so light and melt in your mouth. Even the skins are delectable. Won’t cook them any other way . . . .

    I never thought of doing this so I am trying it tonight. I am always anxious to try things in the crock pot. My crock pot is very old and I sure hope I win the nice pretty red one!!!

  3. Nancy Jo Horton says

    My daughter-in-law shared this idea w/me about the baked potatoes and we just loved them. They were delcious and melted in your mouth.

    I tried baked potatoes in the crock pot. Except I sprayed mine with Pam and sprinkled kosher salt on them before wrapping in tin foil. The potatoes turned out awesome! If you haven’t tried this method you’re missing out ann a real time saver!

    I was always worried that the crock would burst if it had no liquids in it. Do I need to put ater in the bottom of the crock to keep it from cracking? thanks.

      I tried the crock pot cooking and stacked mine as I had 6 large potatoes. I cooked them about 5 hours total and they were perfect(shifted them around about half way through). Love, love them. Thanks for the idea. Next time I plan to try the idea of spraying with Pam and sprinkling with kosher salt. Hard to imagine them being better than the ones I just cooked, but want to give a try with the salt.

    I love doing this in the summer when I don’t like heating up my kitchen or in wintertime when the oven is full baking pies or roasting the turkey!

    • Michelle Evans says

      It’s April and with what you posted, I can’t wait for Thanksgiving! I may have a Sneek Peek!

    I usually slice my Sweet Potatoes in half lengthwise before wrapping in aluminum foil to cut down on the time needed to bake. This helps when trying to time with other foods to have everything ready at the same time.

  8. Rachel says

    this is the only way I will make mine now! SO MUCH better than microwaved and far quicker than doing in the oven. After rinsing mine, I sprinkle with kosher salt too and then wrap up. Even better, cut any leftovers up and use next day for a soup or something since they are already cooked :)

    #Brilliant!! Putting something in my crock pot without water is a little scary, but I’m game to give it a try!! Can’t wait to give it a go!!! My website above is my YouTube channel, definitely going to blog/vlog about this one. I’ll be sure to give a shoutout to!! :) I love #Pinterest recipes!! Do you guys have an absolute, hands down favorite “easy” recipe?

    (Had to repost this because I hit the button before I was finished…lol #BusyMomma!!)

      I bake my potatoes in the Crock Pot but I add an inch of water in the bottom and I do not wrap my potatoes. They turn out very good. I also bake them naked the same way in a 5 quart covered pot. Turns out great.

    Always good to cook in crock pot pop in at lunch then ready when home ☺…. but honestly i’m hooked on microwave about 20 mins each side WaLa done and ready to quickly serve

    Okay, I go camping with my horses, and usually there are 5 to 10 trailers with us… That is a lot of people to feed!! So when you ride 20 miles in a day usually us girls are in no mood to cook when we get back to camp, crockpot cooking saves us a lot of time and trouble. I have been cooking potatoes like this at home and at camp and they turn out perfect every time!!! I have never put oil on them or salt but I am not old to try something new!! LOL Thank you for suggesting this great idea ….,
