How to serve these Slow Cooker Baked Potatoes?
I like to serve these Slow Cooker Baked Potatoes in different ways. First for an easy lunch. When I have friends over for lunch (or light dinner) these are my favorite. I place them in the slow cooker in the morning and by lunch they are ready. I serve them with a salad or even a soup. I love serving these with my taco soup or turkey chili.

We love added the broccoli right to the potato and then topping it with cheese.
