A baked potato bar is a simple, healthy, and satisfying dinner that can be ready within minutes of walking in the door.

Crock Pot Baked Potato Bar



  1. Rinse and scrub potatoes, then prick each potato a few times with a fork.
  2. Place potatoes directly into the Crock Pot and cook on high for 3-4 hours, or until done. If not serving right away, quickly brush water over each potato using a pastry brush to prevent the skins from cracking, then cover and turn to the "keep warm" setting until ready to serve.
  3. To serve, make a cross-shaped cut in the top of each potato and press inward on opposite ends to create an opening (use a kitchen towel to protect your hands if potatoes are too hot!).
  4. Sprinkle generously with sea salt, then add toppings of choice.


You can add 2-4 Tbsp water to the Crock Pot before cooking if desired - this will keep the skins more moist and soft, but I find that the firmer, drier skins hold up better for stuffed baked potatoes.
