During the heat of the summer my favorite way to cook potatoes is in the slow cooker. Not only is the slow cooker method energy efficient and super easy, but it also doesn't heat up your kitchen like baking potatoes in the oven.
Using plain old out of the bag russet potatoes, I follow these four easy steps to make a delicious meal.
Using a scrubbing pad, remove all the dirt from the skin of each potato.
Using a fork or knife, poke several holes into the potatoes.
Wrap each potato in aluminum foil.
Place the potatoes in a slow cooker and cook on high for 5-6 hours or on low 8-10 hours.
Add your favorite toppings and serve as a complete meal.
We top our potatoes with butter, cheese, broccoli, chopped bacon, sour cream, salsa and green onions!
Eating a potato with the skin on is a very healthy and nutritious meal. A whole potato provides a great source of fiber, vitamin C and potassium.
