Jacket Potatoes were meant for the slow cooker! Perfect throughout the year, and can be served with your favourite jacket potato topping!

If you've never cooked a jacket potato in the slow cooker before, you may be slightly surprised that they turn out a little darker than you're used to. Don't panic! This is the Maillard Reaction taking place, which happens when starches are cooked without liquids. It actually makes the potatoes taste awesomely nutty, so trust us when we tell you it's a good thing!

If you're a fan of crispy skins, bake them for 10 minutes before eating.

Serve 'em up with your favourite jacket potato topping - ours is a Slow Cooker Chilli Con Carne!


  • 4 Jacket Potatoes
  • Olive Oil
  • Salt


  1. Give the potatoes a good scrub under the tap to remove any dirt, then place them on a piece of tin foil. Rub all over with olive oil, then sprinkle with salt. Wrap tightly in the tin foil so that no moisture can escape.
  2. Roll up a few balls of tin foil (about golf ball sized) and place them on the bottom of the slow cooker - this is to lift the potatoes up from the bottom of the cooking dish and prevent them from drying out. You'll probably need about five.
  3. Place the potatoes on top of the foil balls and cook for 8-10 hours on low, or 4-6 on high. We think the potatoes taste better when cooked on low!
  4. Slice 'em open and serve with your favourite jacket potato topping!
