Slow cooker baked potato

Slow cooker baked potato HLH

Day 1

And this is where we begin!  With an easy meal of baked potatoes stuffed with all the fillings you can imagine.  My favourite?  A simple mix of grated cheese, sour cream and bacon.

I love this for a quick weekday meal, but this would also be great to serve for a party or family gathering.  The potatoes can cook ahead of time and stay warm in the slow cooker, then everyone can help themselves to a spread of fillings (bacon, sour cream, grated cheese, chilli con carne, garlic mushrooms, dhal…).

This is a fun meal for the kids too – they loved building their own potato mountain.

    Found your blog through the Nester’s link and I’m so excited for your series! I love using my slow cooker and I love that you’re not going to add any cream-of soups or pre-mixes to your recipes (although I do have a clean cream soup recipe that works really well on roasts!). Anyway, I’m happy to be here! 🙂

    I am wanting to get into the practice of using my slow cooker more often, so will be following along here! Thanks for this idea of using the slow cooker for baked potatoes – I never had thought of that before, and will be trying it out. Always so handy to use the slow cooker, freeing up the oven for other things, as well.

    I love my slow-cooker, too. I need more recipes. I had no idea you could bake a potato in one. Love this!

    Hi Jenna, thanks for following along. I love your ‘shut up & sew’ challenge – learning to sew properly is on my bucket list!

    I LOVE my slow cooker. Use it weekly, sometimes twice a week. Looking forward to trying out new recipes. Did the potatoes today. So easy and so DELICIOUS! Perfect for fall. Thanks so much!

    We love potatoes in our house. Will give this a go soon.

    I’ve seen this done before. Thanks for reminding me to try it. As a mama of four small kiddos, the slow cooker is my best friend.

    Popping over from Nester’s. 🙂

    Hello and Happy New Year

    I have been the proud owner of a Slow Cooker for the last two weeks, so I’m a complete novice. I have just found your site while searching for recipes and am going to start working my way through your 31 day challenge and see how i get on…

    It is great to have found a site with so many recipes in one place and so clearly explained and also to see comments from people who have actually tried and tested them.
