You're welcome everyone! Stephanie did all the work. Here's my crockpot baked potato recipe, simple is best:

Be sure to dry them, as they do discolor a little as per description even when they ARE dry.

I also used her tip of cooking them in the oven, then transferring to crockpot, with great success. They travel way and stay warm that way.

If you choose potatoes on the small side, medium or smaller, more of them fit in the crockpot. And smaller portions are better for us.

Thanks Carol! Do you have a favorite way to do baked potatoes in the crock pot?

Thank you so much for this link. I have had such a busy life lately and am always looking for ways I can use my crockpot to make things easier emoticon

Therefore, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us also lay aside every weight, and sin which clings so closely, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, 2 looking to Jesus, the founder and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is seated at the right hand of the throne of God. Hebrews 12:1-3 (ESV)

A Year of Slow Cooking: Slow Cooking in the Summer Months

The above is Stephanie O'Dea, The Crockpot Lady, 's blog on summer crockpot cooking.

One thing I will add that's not on here . . . when cooking for a crowd and you don't have time to make laborious things like potato salad, a Baked Potato Bar is the bomb. And YES you CAN bake potatoes in your crockpot, even borrow a few crocks from neighbors and load them up, in order to not heat up the oven and to use less electricity than the oven; or, to leave the oven free for something else. Baked potatoes travel well, too, and don't have refrigeration concerns that the mayo in potato salad has.
