Yield 4 servings 1x


  • 4 large russet potatoes (~3/4 lb. / potato)
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • salt, to taste
  • pepper, to taste


  1. Begin by prepping russet potatoes. Run potatoes under warm water and use your fingers to remove any dirt or residue.
  2. Pat dry with a kitchen towel or paper towel.
  3. Use a fork to pierce potatoes on all sides (around 8-10 times per potato).
  4. Then, rub each potato with olive oil.
  5. Generously season the outside of each potato with salt and pepper, to taste.
  6. Place potatoes on the bottom of your slow cooker.
  7. Place the lid on slow cooker and then turn to high. Let cook on high for 4-6 hours. Cook time will depend on the size of the potatoes.
  8. You know your potatoes are done cooking when they are easily pierced with a fork, but still firm on the outside. If the flesh is still hard on the inside, cook them a little longer.
  9. Let baked potatoes cool for 10-15 minutes, and then slice and serve.
