When I first saw this idea it was one of those, why didn't I think of that, moments. Anyone else ever have moments like that? Cooking baked potatoes in the crock pot is so nice. It's great in the summer you don't have to turn on the oven and heat your house up or if you are cooking a big meal and need your oven for another dish you won't have to wait for the potatoes to finish cooking. You can put them in the crock pot in the morning, not worry about them all day, and at dinner time they are ready to eat. I have tried to make microwave baked potatoes before, but have not been pleased with the results. I was pleasantly surprised when these came out tasting just like they had been cooked in the oven.
