I love baked potatoes all covered in yummy goodness. You know the kind with melted butter, sour cream, bacon, cheese? Well, I love to eat them but hardly ever make them myself. They just seem to take too long or be too hard or something…I’m not really sure what it is. ANYhooo, I overheard someone saying that they make their baked potatoes in the crock pot and knew I wanted to hear more!
The process is simple. Wash your potatoes thoroughly and poke some holes in them with a fork. Wrap in foil and place in the crock pot. Cook on high for 3 to 4 hours or until potatoes are soft on the inside. I have cooked them this way with as few as six in the crock pot and as many as ten. It works perfectly every time.
I decided to turn my baked potatoes into a meal by making a Baked Potato Bar.
I included butter, salsa, salt and pepper, sour cream, and bacon. I’m sure you can think of some other toppings to add to the bar.
This is a great meal if you have running around to do or for after church. Just throw the potatoes in the crock pot and bake your bacon before you head out. This has become one of my kid’s favorites because they taste so good and one of my favorites because it’s so easy!
Yum! Thank you for sharing. I am now craving baked potatoes!
What a great idea! Baked potatoes would be a good addition to a leftover smorgasbord…leftover chili with cheese, or leftover chicken with ranch dressing and salad, leftover taco meat, fritos and cheese. Just pile whatever leftovers you want on your potato and turn it into a meal…yum!

I love the idea of your Crock Pot Baked Potatoes and your Potato Bar. Hope you are having a great day and thank you so much for sharing with Full Plate Thursday!
Come Back Soon,
we’re having a large family over to share dinner with us soon, and I couldn’t make up my mind what to have. Thanks for the inspiration! This would be so easy!
We actaully had a baked potato bar at our wedding reception. Mom borrowed every crockpot and electric roaster from all of our friends. 🙂
Baked potatoes in a crock pot, that’s brilliant! I will be trying this soon, thanks for sharing.

Congratulations! You’ve been featured on Wicked Awesome Wednesday! I will definitely be trying your crock pot baked potatoes very soon! Feel free to stop by the website and pick up your “I’ve Been Featured!” button!!
This article will assist the internet users for setting up new web site or even a weblog from start to end.
You really make it seem really easy along with your presentation but I find this matter to be really something which I feel I’d never understand.
It seems too complicated and extremely broad for me.
I am looking ahead on your subsequent put up, I
will try to get the hold of it!
If you were cook them on low in the crock pot, how long do you think you’d do that for?
