Crock pot potatoes are a great alternative to heating up your house with the oven. Cover them with a little salt and olive oil and you have the most delicious side dish!


  • 35 Russet Potatoes
  • salt, olive oil *optional for putting on potatoes before wrapping in foil


  1. After washing and drying each potato, prick them a few times with a fork.
  2. Wrap each potato in foil.
  3. Cook in crock pot on low heat for about 6-8 hours or until soft. Mine took 6 hours but my slow cooker seems to cook things faster.
