I Can’t Believe I Have Never Thought To Do THIS Instead Of Microwaving My Potatoes…

Updated January 7, 2016

With the holidays coming up, chances are that family members are going to be coming over for a big meal at some point or anther. While spending time with your family is often one of the most rewarding things a person can do, slaving away in the kitchen to cook for tons of people can ruin the day for a chef.

Instead of getting stressed out about cooking large amounts of food, the better idea to to figure out the smarter way to cook these big portions. Baked potatoes are a holiday classic, but even the microwave hack isn’t going to help you bake tons of potatoes at once. So instead, just grab the slow cooker!

The One Pot Chef once again lives up to his name with this ingenious recipe. This is not only the easiest way to bake a potato, it may be the most delicious as well. And just like everything in a slow cooker, set it and forget it.

Start out with a medium-size square of tinfoil, placing the potato square in the middle. Puncture the skin several times with a fork, then lightly coat with olive oil. Sprinkle on a bit of salt, then wrap it up.

Repeat the process for as many potatoes you like, depending on how big your slow cooker is. Switch it on and leave to cook for 6-7 hours at low, or 4-5 hours at high. Once unwrapped, these potatoes will be tender, fluffy and absolutely delicious.
