How to "bake" a potato in the crockpot
Step 1 Decide how many potatoes you'll need. Wash potatoes well, be sure to scrub off all the dirt. After your potatoes are washed, melt butter and brush all over the skin of the potato.
Step 2 Sprinkle the potato with salt and pepper to your taste. You can also add other spices you'd like, such as chili powder, garlic powder or onion powder.
Step 3 Cut aluminum foil to fit each potato and wrap potatoes tightly.
Step 4 Place inside the empty crockpot and cover. Turn on high to allow your potatoes to cook for 4-6 hours or low and you can cook them for 6-8 hours.
Step 5 Remove potatoes from crockpot using pot holders. They will be hot. Tear off aluminum foil and allow to cool for about 5 minutes. Serve with butter and/or sour cream.
