"Baking" potatoes in the slow cooker won't give you crispy skin, but they cook so nicely and are totally hands-off, no oven required!


Russet potatoes
Olive oil (optional)


Scrub potatoes and prick several times with the tines of a fork. Place each one onto a square of aluminum foil.

Lightly rub with oil if desired, then sprinkle with salt.

Wrap tightly and place in the slow cooker. Cook on low for 8-10 hours or high for 5-7 hours.


Cook times will vary based on the size of your potatoes. Try to use potatoes that are all roughly the same size.

Start checking doneness with a fork at the minimum cook time and allow the potatoes to cook for longer if necessary.
