Jacket potatoes in the slow cooker – so simple!

This post may contain affiliate links.

I’m a real fan of using my slow cooker. I love nothing more than setting a nice meal up for the day and then coming home, or finishing my work, and it being ready. Slow cookers are super convenient, whether you are going to be home or not. I’ve cooked a wide variety of meals in my slow cooker now and I’m branching out more every week. Recently I decided that I would try making jacket potatoes in the slow cooker – and they were so straightforward!

Now this is unbelievably easy. Wash the potatoes, prick them with a fork and then pat them dry. Place the potatoes on individual sheets of tin foil. Brush them with a little olive oil and season with salt. Then wrap up and they are ready to go in the slow cooker.

You can cook these on high for around 5-6 hours or low for around 8-9 hours. Personally I went for high and mine were ready in 5 hours definitely. Then I set my slow cooker to the keep warm function and left them for another hour. How I could tell they were ready was I gave one a prod with a knife. It was soft throughout.

I can’t believe how easy it is to make jacket potatoes in the slow cooker and how tasty they are! It took me around 2 minutes to get them prepared and then I just left them all day. These jacket potatoes were probably one of the simplest things I’ve ever made in my slow cooker! It was suggested to me over on my Twitter that these would go great with slow cooked pulled pork and I could not agree more!
