Slow Cooker Baked Potatoes

The ultimate idea behind a slow cooker is to make life simpler, therefore I have discovered how easy, and awesome, baked potatoes** are when made via crock pot. No more microwaved baked potatoes for this girl!

Needed:

Potatoes (size and kind are up to you)

Salt and pepper

Extra virgin olive oil

Aluminium foil

Directions:

1. Wash/scrub the outside of each potato to remove any dirt. Pierce the potatoes on all sides with a fork.

2. Place EACH potato on a piece of aluminium foil (they must be wrapped individually). Sprinkle with salt and pepper; drizzle with a bit of olive oil – then wrap the potato in the aluminium foil. Repeat for EACH potato.

3. Place all potatoes inside the slow cooker and turn to LOW. Cook for approximately 5 hours or until potatoes are soft when pierced with a fork.

Cheese and rice, now THAT’S easy!

Enjoy!

**This same method can be used for cooking sweet potatoes and beets!
