  • slow cooker


  • 4 - 6 russet baking potatoes I have done 8
  • 2 - 3 teaspoons olive oil optional 1/2 teaspoon per potato (I typically omit oil and salt)
  • 1 - 11/2 teaspoons salt about 1/4 teaspoon per potato(optional)
  • Aluminum foil
  • Your choice of toppings: Grated cheese, cooked broccoli, crumbled bacon, chives, chili, sour cream etc.


  • Scrub the potatoes and dry completely.
  • Prick each potato several times with a fork.
  • Rub potatoes with a tiny bit of oil and then rub with salt. This step can be omitted.
  • Wrap each potato tightly in aluminum foil. Be sure potato is completely covered.
  • Place potatoes in slow cooker
  • Cook the potatoes on high for 4 to 5 hours or low for 8 to 10 hours, or until soft. Do not overcook or potatoes will become soggy. I cook mine about 8 hours.
  • Carefully unwrap the potatoes.
  • Cut potatoes open and top with desired toppings.
