You could use as many as you would like but you do need some hot air circulating inside the pot so you don’t want to pack it totally full. If you have a large pot you would of course have a larger area to work with for more of them at the same time.
Potatoes (as many as you want)
Preparation: Start by cleaning the potatoes thoroughly and pat them dry. Make sure to remove any eyes or unwanted spots.
Piercing: Use a fork to create several puncture holes around each potato. This helps in even cooking and prevents the potatoes from bursting.
Seasoning: Drizzle a modest amount of olive oil over each potato, ensuring an even coat. Follow this up with a sprinkle of salt, adjusting to your taste.
Wrapping: Wrap each potato securely in aluminum foil, ensuring there are no exposed parts.
Slow Cooking: Place the foil-wrapped potatoes into your slow cooker. For a relaxed cooking time, set it to low and let them cook for 7-8 hours. If you’re short on time, turn the setting to high and cook them for 4-5 hours.
Serving: Once the potatoes are tender and fully cooked, unwrap them and serve with your favorite toppings. Consider classics like cheese, sour cream, or crispy bacon bits to elevate the flavors.
Slow cooker baked potatoes aren’t just easy; they’re a gourmet delight. So, the next time you have a craving, indulge in this elevated potato experience!
