Slow Cooker Baked Potatoes Recipe – perfectly soft and fluffy potatoes baked in a crock pot. So easy and perfect topped with cheese, bacon and sour cream.
This is the easiest and also my new favorite way to make perfect baked potatoes. It works every time and it’s such a time-saver! The potatoes come out soft and fluffy every time. I make them to serve with these BBQ Ribs (talk about a delicious dinner with minimal work!) or to top them with Pulled Pork, Chili or taco chicken or beef. So many options! I love them simply with butter, salt, pepper and dill.
I think it’ safe to say that my slow cooker is getting a work out lately. Between hearty soups and delicious chicken and these fabulous Baked Potatoes – it’s saving me time and I just love knowing that delicious food is cooking while I get other things done.
This recipe couldn’t be easier: rub washed potatoes with olive oil and salt and pepper, wrap tightly with aluminum foil, place in a slow cooker with a little bit of water and set for 4 to 8 hours. When ready, unwrap and top with cheddar cheese, bacon, sour cream and dill. Or simply serve with butter and seasoning. They are delicious!
