I’ve been wanting to start the “Tips & Tricks” blog posts for awhile now. I figured that those of us who had advice (on any topics), or knew things that could help others, it would be beneficial to start sharing those ideas. I’ll be contributing different kinds of “Tips & Tricks“, such as things to do with the internet, social media, home, crafts and many others!! Be sure to stay connected to “TigerStrypes” to see the new ones that get posted.
Today’s Post Will Be About:
“Easy Baked Potatoes”
Today’s “Tips & Tricks” post is about making “Easy Baked Potatoes“. How many times have you been super busy during the day, and didn’t really think of dinner until it was almost time? Then you wanted to make something with baked potatoes and figured that there just wasn’t a lot of time. Well, now you can plan that early, and then the rest of the meal later! Just get that good old crockpot out of the cupboard and turn it on!!
Below are the steps of how to make these easy baked potatoes, without even really having to think of it during the day! This is perfect for if you work outside of the home and want to make a quick chicken dish, or have some leftover beef to heat up. Now you can have a yummy baked potato as your side dish, with minimal effort!
1. Start by using a fork to pierce your potatoes. Be careful not to poke your hand, if you’re holding it that way!
3. Before you wrap the potato, drizzle some olive oil over the top, and sprinkle some seasonings over it. Then, wrap it up snugly, so that no oil will escape.
4. Next, just put them in the crockpot, on low for 6-8 hours or high for 3-4 hours. You’ll be able to apply some pressure with your hand in an oven mitt to see if they are finished at the end. If they are still a bit firm, let them cook awhile longer.
5. Now you can just remove them from the crockpot, unwrap them and dress them how you wish! Cut them in half and add sour cream, onions or any other toppings that you enjoy! Hope you like it!
I hope that this “Tips & Tricks” post has helped you today. If so, let me know in the comments. If not, or if you already knew about this, then just let me know a “Tip” or a “Trick” that you would be interested in for the future!
