Here's an easy recipe for your lunch or dinner today.
You will need:
8 potatoes (medium sized)
Small amount of oil
Brush the potatoes with oil and prick them all over (don't overlook this step). Rub them with salt then wrap them in foil. I actually use my hands with the oil then the salt but you can use a pastry brush. Turn on the crock pot to low and place the wrapped potatoes on the base. No liquid is needed so don't add any. Cover and cook for 8 hours. If you decide to use small potatoes then reduce the cooking time only by about an hour.
I had left over chili con carne in my freezer so I used that as the topping that day. I sprinkled some shredded cheese as well over the top. You can use whatever you have in the pantry, fridge or freezer for toppings or you can try one of the ones below.
Here are 6 other toppings you can use:
1. Shredded cheese and salsa
2. Chopped Onions, bacon and tomatoes
3. Cream cheese and chopped chives
4. Pineapple, chopped ham and shredded cheese
6. Tuna, corn and mayo
Allow at least 2 per person. You can serve the topped potatoes with salad if you wish. This dish makes a good weekend lunch or Sunday night dinner. Cooking these baked potatoes in the crock pot is so easy.
