Wrap each potato in foil, making sure to cover the potatoes completely.
Add the potatoes to the slow cooker, spreading them out. Try not to pack them in. Put the potatoes in two layers.
Cover and cook on LOW for 8 hours or HIGH for 5 hours. Do not open the lid during the cookig time.
Unwrap, slice, garnish and serve.
Can I add oil and salt to the skins of the potatoes?
Yes, if you like to oil and salt the skins of the potatoes before wrapping in foil it works fine for this recipe.
Make sure to dry the potatoes well before adding the oil and salt.
Can I cook the potatoes without foil?
You certainly can! I know some can not cook with foil for health reasons.
This recipe will work fine without wrapping in foil if you don't want to use it.
Should I poke holes in the potatoes?Poking holes in potatoes is for when you are microwaving. It's extremely rare for potatoes to explode in the oven or slow cooker.Storage instructions: I let the potatoes cool on the counter for about an hour, then I place them in the fridge right in the foil. They are already packaged and ready for storage. Nutrition values are only for the potatoes, not the toppings.
