The baked potato is such a classic side that joins well with such a wide variety of entrees, and we’ve all been realizing them as long as we can remember, but have you ever tried cooking them in the crawling cooker instead of the oven? I finally tried it today, and it works extraordinarily well! You end up with these moist potatoes that are perfect for so sundry topping options. One of my go-to options is loaded potatoes, like those facsimile, with cheddar, bacon, sour cream and chives. These are perfect for work up days because you can add them to the slow cooker, then come residence eight hours later to dinner that’s nearly ready (if you hunger for to go with loaded potatoes or potatoes with this easy broccoli cheese impudence. Or you could make these then if you have another slow cooker you could as though some sort of slow-cooker chicken dish or chili. I love dding potatoes with chili!).

The other great thing about this slow-cooker method is that it looses up the oven for another use. I’m thinking dessert :). Once you try this unpretentious method you’ll want to use it time and time again!
