Slow Cooker Baked Potatoes

I know what you're thinking, baked my slow cooker???  YES!  It's easy and believe it or not, they taste good.  Now I will admit, they are not the same as having them right out of the oven, but in a pinch, it works.

 Step 1:  Wash potatoes and scrub if necessary

 Step 2: Prick each potato several times with a fork

Step 3: Rub olive oil all over potato and season with salt and pepper

Step 4: Cook on low in the slow cooker for 8 hours.
Sorry about the last picture being crooked, but that is what the potato looks like when it's done before all the good toppings.  I didn't put any water in with the potatoes when I was cooking it and they turned out fine (to my surprise).  Although, I would rather cook my potatoes in the oven, this did the trick too.  It will work on those days when there just isn't enough time to get everything done.
