Thought I'd pass this Budget Savvy Diva recipe along, in case you've never tried it. Basically, scrub 6-12 large russet potatoes (my medium crockpot held 8 potatoes), prick the skins, rub with olive oil, salt/pepper to taste, wrap each potato in aluminum foil and pop them into the crockpot on low for like 8-9 hours. Wa-la, no need to heat up your oven in this blasting summer heat.
|This is not one of my potatoes. I was too hungry to take pictures.|
Try to keep the potatoes all relatively the same size, or at least take the smaller ones out when they feel done. (Put on an oven mitt and give them a gentle squeeze.) If you let the little ones stay in till the big ones are done, the insides of the smaller ones turn that weird pinkish color (although they still taste okay.)
Hope you're enjoying your weekend and thanks for dropping by!
