TIPS FOR MAKING CROCK POT LOADED BAKED POTATOES:

  • It’s not absolutely necessary to line the slow cooker with aluminum foil, but I find it best so that you can easily pull it out of the slow cooker to serve.
  • Try seasoning these with Ranch Seasoning Mix instead of paprika, salt and pepper. If you enjoy ranch, then you will love those combinations of flavors.
  • Instead of serving with sour cream, I also enjoy eating these served with my Homemade Ranch Dressing.
  • For this recipe, you could also use peeled and diced (into chunks) russet or gold potatoes.
  • If too much condensation builds up under the lid while making these, just put a clean kitchen dish towel or a layer of paper towels under the lid to absorb the extra condensation.

Season potatoes with the smoked paprika, salt, pepper and one clove of minced garlic.

Repeat for the second layer: potatoes, paprika, salt and pepper, minced garlic, shredded cheese, bacon and green onions.
