  1. Well I can’t eat dairy (because of Lior), and we don’t eat bacon, so my potato would be pretty lonely with your ingredients!!

    I love a bit of homemade caulslaw, and I am pretty fond of putting a bunch of leftovers on top! Savoury mince from the night before, or shredded chicken or something is always good!

  2. Oh my! I had no idea you could do that! I always end up microwaving and then crisping in the “proper” oven when I get in from work…….. Thank you.
    For me it’s got to be Tuna mayonnaise with a plate full of lettuce, tomato and spring onions.

    • I think it kinda insulates the heat. But I guess you could try. I wouldn’t leave the house in case it burns though. I’m a scaredy-cat. 🙂

      • I’ve done them plenty of times pricked and buttered in my slow cooker, but I’ll try this. Thanks 🙂

  3. What a great idea, I love my slow cooker too. I would totally have your toppings, although I am partial to the old school coleslaw, cheese and sour cream, or chilli.

  4. Oh yum!!!! Simple & goooooood! Thanks for sharing!
    I like a bit of everything on my spuds – bacon, sour cream, cheese, avo & a sprinkle of shallots :)))))
    And yes…..I LOVE LOVE LOVE my slow cooker!!!! I too am a Domestic Organised Goddess thanks to mine haaa!

  5. I just finished putting my slow cooker meal on before I sat down to read my blogs!
    I LOOOoooooooooove the slow cooker – I’ve used it twice this week already. It makes preparing an awesome meal very easy, which I never thought was possible with an 8 week old baby. I prepare dinner in his day naps and make mash potato straight away (which I microwave later).
    Funnily enough, hubby asked me to make potato jacks sometime this week – Looks like I will be using the slow cooker once again this week!

  6. I have never thought of doing them in my slow cooker either! We sometimes have baked spuds but only on a day I don’t work, so that I have time to cook them, but I could put the slow cooker on before I go to work & they’d be ready for their toppings when I got home. We like cheese, coleslaw, shredded beetroot, a little bacon & of course, sour cream!!

  7. What a great idea! I’m still being surprised (pleasantly) by the things people are making in their slow cookers 🙂 I may just have to try this one day!

  8. My fav baked potato is the classic Hawaiian, cheese, chicken, bacon, pineapple, coleslaw and sour cream!! Yummy
    And FYI I found this on Wikipedia
    The Naxon Utilities Corporation of Chicago developed the Naxon Beanery All-Purpose Cooker.[2] The Rival Company bought Naxon in 1970 and reintroduced it under the Crock-Pot name in 1971. In 1974, Rival introduced removable stoneware inserts.[3] The brand now belongs to Sunbeam Products, a subsidiary of Jarden Corporation. Other brands of this appliance include Hamilton Beach, West Bend Housewares, GE, Magic Chef, and former American Electric Corporation.

  9. I love our slow cooker ~ I use it nearly twice a week! We love making Potato Bake in the Slow cooker…its so much easier than the oven, and taste way yummier!
    We even make soups (chicken and veggie soup) in it! Never thought to do baked potatoes before.

  10. Whats the point of putting potatoes in the slow cooker for 8 hours when you could easily just put them in an oven and leave them to cook in under 1 hour… Sorry, slow cooked curries and soups i get but this seems like a waste of power and time to me.

  11. Damn! I found this too late for today…if I start them now we could eat them at midnight – pretty cool midnight snack! 😉 But I don’t have to patience to wait til midnight today! I think I’ll do these tomorrow… and pop them on at 10 am! Better set myself a reminder!!!!

  12. I’ve been meaning to figure out how to do this, and there you are! I can even put my slow cooker on the porch (since it’s summer here) and not heat up the house. Smooches to you!

  13. I absolutely cannot wait to try this. Tomorrow as I head out for work I’m setting it up. Cant wait to come home to dinner. Thank you for the recipe. I’m always trying to collect great realistic recipes.
