Loaded baked potatoes are so quick and easy to make. A few of my other favorites are Loaded Turkey Chili Baked PotatoBroccoli and Cheese Twice Baked Potato, and Loaded Philly Cheesesteak Baked Potatoes.

I’m always looking for new crock pot recipes and have been meaning to make these for quite some time. I loved the fact that the potatoes were ready when I got home from work. All I had to do was throw some steaks on the grill, make a quick salad and dinner was done in less than 20 minutes. The potatoes come out with a deeper yellow color when cooked in the crock pot but they taste just like they do in the oven and the clean-up is quick and easy. Top with your favorite fixins!

And since so many are asking, although I have and love my Instant Pot, I still love my slow cooker! I have the 6 Quart Hamilton Beach Set ‘n Forget Programmable Slow Cooker (affil link). I love it because you can adjust the time you want it to cook, and it automatically turns to warm when it’s done. It also has a probe for meat that automatically shuts off when done. I hated my old crock pot, it burnt everything and my food had a weird taste. This slow cooker is so great, I actually own several!
