I couldn’t believe how easy these potatoes were to make and how they freed up oven space by using a slow cooker. This YouTube video by OnePotChefShow has the perfect solution to making baked potatoes without using an oven. Even though they make a great dish to take to a family get together, since they stay warm in the slow cooking pot for hours, I can picture these as part of any summer meal, where turning on the oven really isn’t an option in my home.
I tried making potatoes like this for one of the holiday get-togethers. It was a half hour drive to the home where it was held and dinner wasn’t for an hour. I did take the entire slow cooker with me and plugged it in on low when I got there. I also took butter from grass fed cows, plenty of sour cream, a small dish of crumbled bacon and chopped green onions to put on top. Everyone loved this idea and the potatoes and toppings were gone in no time.
