Slow Cooker Baked Potatoes are the easiest, fool proof recipe, that no one can mess up! We love potatoes, and since we got the Slow Cooker, making baked potatoes became a tradition in our house. The recipe for this dish involves a few simple steps. The Slow Cooker Baked Potatoes are best cooked on low, for 7-8 hours. I like to quickly add them to my slow cooker before I go to work, and at dinnertime my husband just grills a steak or chicken and we have a rounded, delicious meal. Easy like that! I love my Crockpot – this one is so reasonably priced!

WHAT ARE THE BEST POTATOES FOR BAKING?
As a general rule, you want to use starchy potatoes when baking. The best ones for baking would be Yukon Gold and Russets potatoes, as they have the most starch in them.
WHAT IS THE MOST NUTRITIOUS PART OF A POTATO?
I always recommend to use organic potatoes when cooking, since they contain way less chemicals, and are safe to eat with skin-on. That being said, a potato skin contains significant nutrients. Similarly, the flesh is healthy and has good nutrients. Potatoes are a rich source of fiber, iron, vitamin C and vitamin B-6, but to get the most nutrients you’ll need to eat the whole potato.
