I wanted to share with you a great tip for how to cook “baked” potatoes. Instead of heating up your house this summer try a crock pot instead. This is also a great way to prepare baked potatoes on a weeknight too! Love this one! I made them and you could not tell they were not baked.

- Crock Pot
- Wash your potatoes well and let them dry.
- Coat the potatoes in course salt to help retain moisture.
- Wrap each potato in a piece of foil. You do not need to prick them.
- Place wrapped potatoes in your crock pot. You can place 10 medium sized potatoes in a 4 quart crock pot.
- Cook on low for 8 hours.
- Another option: You can cook without foil – prick the potatoes and rub with olive oil. Or add a couple of balls of crushed up aluminum foil to the crock pot mixed in with the potatoes.
