I Can’t Believe I Have Never Thought To Do THIS Instead Of Microwaving My Potatoes…
As tasty as they are, making baked potatoes can be a pain. Just peeling them turns into quite a chore. If you're tired of the mess and work that goes into making this side dish, we've got the solution for you. The One Pot Chef demonstrates a method of cooking baked potatoes that will make your life easier and get everyone you serve wanting more. As the chef himself says, "These potatoes are nice, tender and ready to eat immediately."
If you're interested in trying this method yourself, all you need are potatoes, olive oil, salt and a slow cooker. The key is to prick the potatoes with a fork all over; this helps them cook and leaves them extra tender. You also want to brush the potatoes with olive oil and salt. After that, wrap them in tin foil and place them in a slow cooker. The foil-wrapped potatoes should cook for anywhere between 4-8 hours depending on the type of slow cooker you are using. Once they are ready, you can unwrap the potatoes and begin serving right away, or keep them in the slow cooker where they will stay warm for hours.
The result is awesome, flavorful potatoes that will leave everyone at the table very jealous of you. You'll never have to microwave potatoes again.
