As I am usually too hungry and impatient to wait an hour or 2 for my tea after getting home from work at night, baked potatoes weren’t often on the menu. Then I researched how to do them in the slow cooker, and prefer this method every time! The picture shows a sweet potato, but the method works exactly the same for regular potatoes.
Give your potatoes a quick scrub if necessary, then score or prick them and wrap them individually in foil. Place them in the bottom of the slow cooker and cook on low for 6 – 8 hours. The time needed depends on the size of the potato. You can also cook them on high for 3 – 4 hours.
Our favourite way of eating baked potatoes is smothered in tuna mayo, cheese and baked beans. Very unhealthy, but so good!! They are also great served with chili and a dollop of sour cream.
