10 Minute Tip

I love my crockpot. It's a great way to make sure the family has a hot dinner if I get distracted with driving carpool, or quilting, or taking kids to sports, or quilting, or walking the dog, or quilting. You get the idea. :)

Did you know that baked potatoes are delicious in the crockpot? Just clean the baking potatoes, wrap them each in tin foil, and pop them in the crockpot. Cook on high for an hour or two, then switch the setting to low for the rest of the day. The potatoes will be hot and ready whenever you are. All you have to do is put out the butter, sour cream, shredded cheese, diced ham, broccoli, bacon bits, chives, etc. My kids love loading their own potatoes, and if they are big enough, it's a complete meal.

It only takes 10 minutes in the morning, and dinner is done! Now you have time to quilt instead of cooking!

Enjoy every bite!


  1. I've heard about this, but didn't know the particulars. Thank you for sharing! Now that I know how easy this is, I will definitely be taking advantage.:)

  2. I did this myself just the other day. With just hubby & I it's easier than baking two little potatoes in a big full-sized oven......

  3. Thanks for the idea, I use my crockpot but have never tried baking potatoes.


I love to hear what you have to say, sadly, the spam has gotten ridiculous, so I will be approving comments from now on. I apologize for any inconvenience and I truly appreciate you taking the time to comment. Thanks for visiting and have a great day!
