Crockpot Tuesday

Today's recipe is a side item. I love carbs. and potatoes.

Baked Potatoes

salt and pepper

poke potatoes a few times with a fork to vent. rub some butter on skin of potato and sprinkle with salt and pepper--or whatever you'd like. wrap the potato up in aluminum foil and drop into crock pot. Cook on high for 3 hours.

Careful! These will be super hot--as will the tin foil. Perhaps this goes without saying. Well, i burnt my finger so maybe it has to be said. We did about 5 potatoes at one time and they turned out really well. I slathered mine with some garlic butter, cheese and some turkey chili. We served them with a salad and had a great, simple meal.

Added bonus--Zero cleanup in the crockpot!!

Excuse me, but is this a joke?? It's a freakin' baked potato! Can be done in about 45 mins in the oven. :) Ha ha ha ha ah

i'm going to block you. your comments are always snarky!! :) this way, i just drop them in ahead of time and they are done...without having to use the oven on something silly like a potato so i can use it on the entree. jerk face.

Well, snarky I am, but at least I leave a comment. I know you love the crockpot...baked potatoes in the crockpot is an amazingly wonderful idea. Why didn't I think of it? Then you have the oven free! I just like my potatoes crispy.
