I have been cooking jacket potatoes in the slow cooker for years now and especially when the kids were little and out playing all day – you would hear the dreaded “im hungry” would land and holy hell would break loose! So for me this was a fantastic hack as it allowed me to heat some hotdogs (dont judge lol kids loved them) get the jackets out pop some butter on job done kids fed.
Now they are all grown up its morphed into looking more at food waste and one of the vegetables for me that gets overlooked is potatoes as they are stored in a cupboard on their own in the dark – so easy to forget about. Now when this happens i just pop them in the slow cooker and usually once cooked make waffles out of them as to be honest i prefer waffles to jacket potatoes.
