Comforting baked potatoes topped with bacon, cheese, and sour cream... but served in a bowl in simple, slow cooker soup form!
I wanted to have steak and baked potatoes when we got home from church, but didn't want to wait for the oven to preheat and take the time for the potatoes to bake. I also didn't want to heat up the kitchen in the middle of a Phoenix summer. I thought Slow cooker, but didn't know how it would work. I headed for AR. I did 3 potatoes approximately 8oz each. Rubbed them with olive oil and sprinkled with kosher salt. I placed them on crumpled foil, unwrapped, and cooked on high for 4 hours in a 3 quart slow cooker. They were perfectly done when we got home. I placed them in the oven @ 200° long enough to grill the steaks. The skins were not as crispy as totally baking them in the oven but they did dry out a bit more than when I first took them out of the slow cooker. Will definitely be using this recipe again. Thanks for the time and settings.
These were super easy and yummy! I did 2 potatoes and 3 sweet potatoes for 7 1/2 hours. Yes, the insides of the potatoe was discolored but it didn't alter the taste. The sweet potatoes were Devine! Thank you so much for the easy, wonderful idea!
wonderful way to do the baked potatoes and with summer really good as not heating up kitchen
Not at all necessary to wrap in aluminum foil (and I don't like aluminum to touch my food anyway). I cook mine on low. If you will be away a longer time, just get bigger potatoes and/or put on a rack in the slow cooker. Works well for sweet potatoes too. (and uncut butternut or acorn squash too just stab it like you do the potato). I baked two of them not long ago and then threw them in my air fryer for a few minutes to crisp up the skin (the best part) - worked great!!!!!! No need to oil and salt either, but it is good that way.
