Not to be confused with potato sack… I am so excited to share this potato hack!!!
We LOVE baked potato night for a school night supper. I usually have a variety of toppings (selected from what’s already on hand) like butter, sour cream, cheese, bacon, ham, chopped tomatoes, salsa and green onions. It’s inexpensive, filling and easy. The only problem I consistently run into is forgetting to start my potatoes baking in time to sit down at a decent hour. There’s nothing worse than a partially baked potato.
So here’s the hack – and what is probably the ugliest, most unstaged picture you’ve recently seen on a blog…
THE CROCK POT!!!!!!!!! Simply prick your potatoes with a fork, smear with butter, salt and pepper, wrap in foil and put in the crock pot. You can bake on high for 4-5 hours or on low for 8-10 hours.
Another added benefit is that we can continue having our baked potato nights through the summer since it won’t be heating up an already boiling hot kitchen.
Happy fri-yay, y’all!
