Slow Cooker “Baked” Potatoes

Did you know you can make “baked” potatoes in the slow cooker???  I can’t believe it took me this long to discover this – but I am so happy I did.  This is going to be perfect this summer when we want to grill and need an easy side dish.  I like to top mine with some reduced fat sour cream and a fruity salsa (like mango or peach) but of course, feel free to top them with whatever you like!


4-6 baking potatoes (I usually buy russets)


  • Wash potatoes well and rub dry with a towel.
  • Prick several holes in each potato.  Wrap each potato in aluminum foil.
  • Place in slow cooker.  Cook on low 7-8 hours.
  • Top with reduced fat sour cream, cheese, chives, salsa, etc.
