Like, sweltering hot!
So, rather than turn on the oven and make the kitchen hotter than it already was, I opted to make the baked potatoes in the crockpot.
Let them dry.
Give them a little love and massage some olive oil over them.
Season them with some coarse salt.
Toss them in the crockpot and turn it on to low for 8 hours OR high for 4 hours. I did mine on high and started then at 4pm ... we ate about 8:30 and they were done! They were NOT Costco size taters, just for the record, but ordinary, run of the mill potatoes :-)
Go about your daily stuff. Need some ideas? For 8 hours, maybe go make some money for the bosses.
Or for 4 hours, go float in the pool. Or, clean house. Read a book. Pinterest!
Whatever you do, remember, you got some taters cookin' at home!
*Note - don't be tempted to cook longer than 4 hours on high or 7 to 8 hours on low ... I did 6 hours on high and then was gone when they finished, so the crockpot went to warm and well, they were a little overdone. NOT the end of the world, but still, not recommended!
Looking forward to sharing with some of these GREAT Parties ... go check them out!
