Yes, you can cook potatoes in the CrockPot!
- This is a great meal for company â€“ especially a fun, casual gatheringâ€¦Set out all the toppings, and let people create their ownâ€¦
- This is also an easy way to let your kids help in the kitchen!!
- And, the clean-up…super easy!!
Yes, thatâ€™s really it.
How many potatoes you will use depends on how big your family isâ€¦or how many your crock pot can hold.Â I made 8 (ranging in size from medium to large-ish), and that pretty much filled my crock pot.Â (8 is obviously a bit much for our family of 3 to eat in one mealâ€¦some were for dinner tonight, some will be for lunch tomorrow, and some will be a side dish to dinner on Thursday.)
Scrub potatoes (this is a great job for little helping hands!)
Pierce potatoes all over with a fork (another fun job for little handsâ€¦if done with proper supervision)
Wrap each potato in foil (again…a good task for the kids!)
Place in CrockPot
10 hours on low
6 hours on high
Yes, it really is that simple! Â And, no, you don’t need to add anything (water, oil, etc.)…And no, as long as you pierce the potatoes, they will not explode!
Shredded Cheese or (Homemade) Cheese Sauce (I use Sue Greggâ€™s Recipe â€“ yum!)
Chopped, Cooked Bacon
Steamed or roasted Broccoli or Asparagus
Or, use up leftover(s): Chili, Shredded Barbequed Beef/Pork/Chicken, Spaghetti Sauceâ€¦
