Crock Pot Baked Potato

Hi All! My friend, Erin, told me about this great recipe she completed recently and recommended that I blog about it. So, I handed her the reigns and had her do her very first blog entry! I'm happy to introduce you to my friend, Erin, and her Pinterest Success. So, without further adieu, here she is...

A few months back my home church, Court Street Christian Church, did a really awesome Wednesday night community dinner of loaded baked potatoes, and it was a total hit! Since then, I have craved the yumminess that was that night. So one night a couple weeks ago I decided that's what's for dinner, loaded crock pot baked potatoes!! Mmmmmm, my mouth is drooling thinking about it again. I digress....the day I chose to make the potatoes was an unusually warm day for Washington, and I didn't want to heat my house up with the oven, so I went back to a website I had seen where you could make Crock Pot Baked Potatoes !! Genius, right?!

The website talks about baking many small potatoes, but I had bought 3 GIANT potatoes so I was unsure how they would turn out. 

This was rather easy, I poked a few holes in the potatoes and wrapped them in foil, just as if I was going to bake them in the oven. Then I threw them in the crockpot, and turned that baby on high for 6 hours. About 5 hours in I checked them, and they were definitely soft, but the husband wasn't home from work yet, so I kept them on warm for about another hour and a half. When I final did take them out, they were .... PERFECT!! 

As you can see, the potatoes turned out soft, but not overcooked. I actually think this may be my new go-to method of baking potatoes, as it doesn't heat the house up at all. I would call this a Pinterest WIN!!
