Baked Potatoes in the Slow Cooker

This post contains affiliate links. For more information, visit my disclosure page

Often I make my husband and I baked potatoes for dinner. On the days I’m working late I’ll put my Baked Potatoes in the Slow Cooker.


You’ll need:

Potatoes (I used 5 large)


Scrub potatoes clean and prick with a fork. Coat with oil. I used expeller pressed coconut oil. Place the potatoes in slow cooker.

Cover and cook on 7 – 8 hours on low.

This was the first time I have made my potatoes this way. They were very good. Not so much like a baked potato but more like steamed which made them nice and soft. The flavor was great. I used the leftovers to make fried potatoes for breakfast. Yum!

    This is a great idea! I can see myself filling up the crockpot and cooking potatoes overnight for use in breakfast hashbrowns, potato salad, or any other meal requiring pre-cooked spuds. Thanks!
