Baked Potatoes in a Crockpot

I make many good foods.  Not trying to be boastful, but just helping to illustrate the things I am bad at.  Frozen pizza.  That’s a big one.  Another: baked potatoes.  No idea why.  Shouldn’t be a problem, but they never turn out well.  Ever.  So, Charlie requested baked potatoes with the Slow Roasted Pork.  Lovely.  Also, the temperature is supposed to change several times throughout that roasting.  So, along with the fact that I stink at making baked potatoes, I’d have to account for those temperature changes.  Sure.  Ok.  That’ll happen.  And then I remembered…  Baked potatoes can supposedly be made in a crock pot.  Hm.

I have a crock pot.  I don’t use it often.  I don’t really like it.  It makes me feel lazy.  And besides, I don’t like my food to mix.  But there are occasions where it’s useful.  I figured, what have I got to lose.  My baked potatoes in the oven are sure disasters, so why not try them in the crockpot.  It’s not like they’ll be a larger disaster there.  (Secretly hoping they’ll explode inside it.  Wouldn’t that be fun!?)

Turns out, they worked.  Better (for me at least) than in the oven.  Hm.  Great! (I suppose.)

Here’s how it’s done:  http://crockpot365.blogspot.com/2008/01/crockpot-baked-potatoes_28.html
