Slow-Cooker Baked Potatoes 


These slow-cooker baked potatoes are so easy—just add your favorite toppings. Save any extra potatoes to make baked potato soup the next day. 

6 medium russet potatoes 
3 tablespoons butter, softened 
3 garlic cloves, minced 
1 cup water 
Salt and pepper to taste 
Optional: Sour cream, butter, crumbled bacon, minced chives, guacamole, shredded cheddar cheese and minced fresh cilantro 


Scrub potatoes; pierce each several times with a fork. In a small bowl, mix butter and garlic. Rub potatoes with butter mixture. Wrap each tightly with a piece of foil. 

Pour water into a 6-qt. slow cooker; add potatoes. Cook, covered, on low 8-10 hours or until tender. Season and top as desired.
