Pinterest is quickly becoming one of my very favorite internet past times. (As if I needed another way to waste time on the internet! HA!). I have found some really great ideas & recipes on there. Today I tried something I read on there a couple weeks ago....baking potatoes in the crockpot.
You can read about this technique at the original place I found it (if you like) here...
Or I can just briefly tell you how it works :)
Wrap in aluminum foil
Place in crockpot
Cook on high 6-8 hrs
Remove from crockpot, unwrap & load 'em up with all your favorite toppings!
Doesn't get much easier than that, does it?!? No heating up the kitchen with your oven & no waiting your turn to microwave your potato while everyone else is eating (and, I have to add, these are WAY better than microwaved ones anyway!)
*Note: you have to wrap them in foil & you do NOT add any water to the crockpot...this seems to be the 2 main questions asked over at the blog linked above*
