Introduction: Slow Cooker Baked Potatoes

About: In a valiant attempt to keep myself from dying of boredom, I create.
As I said before, I was raised in Idaho (Born in Oregon, raised in Idaho, live in Utah, keep moving further south and east.)  I recently discovered that you can “bake” potatoes in a slow cooker.  They aren’t really baked any more than potatoes wrapped in foil are baked (they are steamed, because the foil holds the moisture in thus steaming them, sorry I just had to vent).  Yet, it you need some “baked” potatoes to travel this is the way to go.  Let’s get started.

Step 1:

Supplies:
A slow cooker (crock pot)
Washed potatoes (as many as you need)
Shortening or butter
Paring knife

Step 2:

After you have washed and dried the potatoes, pick one up and look for flaws.

Step 3:

Use the paring knife to remove the flaws, (if you don’t want to eat this, remove it).  Repeat with each potato.

Step 4:

With clean hands, cover the each potato with shortening.

Step 5:

Put them in the slow cooker.

Step 6:

Plug the slow cooker into an outlet and turn it on low.

Cook for 8 hours.

Step 7:

When done, remove a potato from the slow cooker and prepare with the toppings you like best on a baked potato.  Enjoy.

    Have you tried out sweet potatoes yet (for those people who tend to swing toward the Paleo)?

    Not yet, would work out about the same though. Thanks for looking.
