Anyone know how long to bake potatoes in a crockpot? I love baked potatoes
but the oven gets the kitchen HOT HOT HOT!

>>BTW, does it work if you don't use foil?<<

I don't know. Never tried it without foil and frankly they don't taste
as good as microwaved anyways

I just picked up a Rival recipe book at a garage sale and it simply
says to fill the crock with scrubbed, well-greased potatoes, cover,
cook on low 8-10 hours. And, of course, do not add water.

For the two of us, I cover the bottom of the crockpot with whole, 
scrubbed potatoes. They conveniently keep, out of the juice that 
collects, a small, whole, Cornish Game Hen, rubbed with salt, pepper, 
paprika and garlic.

Cook on high 30 minutes and then switch to low.

Go to work.

Come home to good smells and dinner ready.

Despite the slow cooking, the bird tends to brown a bit.

These were posted here recently.  My apologies to the
author...I didn't save the headers.

Although they're not exactly scalloped potatoes (with
milk), maybe one will help.
