I don’t know who invented the slow cooker, but I’d like to hunt them down (if they’re still living) and give them a big smooch. Slow cookers rock my world. Is there anything better than smelling dinner cooking away during the day? I always get a smug feeling, like I’m some sort of organised domestic goddess. Because I am. Thank you slow cooker.
Last week I tried these babies, and they couldn’t be simpler. There’s no pricking, no oiling. Just wrap your potatoes, pop them in the slow cooker and you’re good to go. Huzzah. I am a domestic goddess.
Large washed potatoes, as many as you have people in your family (for me that’s 3!)
Aluminum foil, to cover
♥ Wash potatoes and dry thoroughly.
♥ Wrap in foil and place into the slow cooker.
♥ Cook on low for 8 hours, or until cooked through.
♥ Once cooked, top with your favourite toppings.
Note: We topped ours with low-fat cheese, sour cream, chives and some BBQed Chorizo and they were the best potatoes I’ve ever eaten. No kidding.
Another note: You might be asking, do I need to put liquid in that slow cooker? Nope. You don’t. Just the spuds/potatoes in their foil and cook.
