My friend sent me a link to baked potatoes in the crock. I thought that was neat but why would I ever do that when I could just stick them in the oven? I came across the answer to that question last week on Captain's birthday. Now, he is a steak and potato type of guy and for his birthday (which was on a work day) he wanted baked potatoes. I was trying to figure out how I could do this when I was working and would not be home until 30 minutes before dinner. Of course I could have microwaved the potatoes but they NEVER taste good that way. I remembered this and it turned out wonderful! The potatoes were evenly cooked and moist. Perfecto!
wash potatoes, poke a few fork holes in potato, wrap in foil, put in crock on high for 4 hours or low for 8 hours.
