How to Make Baked Potatoes in your Crock Pot

I LOVE baked potatoes and if I fry up some real bacon for bacon bits, I can even convince my husband that they are an entire meal. Did you know that you can make amazing, delicious baked potatoes in your crock pot?  They are so good and fluffy. I love putting them in the crock pot and not worrying about them all day. They are so easy to make, here's how.

The first think you need to do is wash and dry all of the potatoes. Wrap them each in aluminum foil and put in the crock pot. Cook the potatoes on low for about 6 and a half hours. Check the potatoes, if soft they are ready to eat, if not allow them to cook for another hour. I have never had them not be soft after 6 and a half hours. Unwrap and then top with all the yummy things you love. Some of our favorite toppings include, bacon, sour cream, cheese, diced tomatoes, diced avocados and BBQ sauce, not necessarily all together of course. :)

YUM!!! Can you season the skin or should you just keep them dry?

But this requires planning ahead... how do slow cooker baked potatoes compare to microwave potato bag baked potatoes?
