I made these glorified baked potatoes last night and they were a hit! It was super easy and didn’t require a ton of cleanup or make a mess. I’ll gladly carry the title of “Queen of the Crockpot” because it’s my most used kitchen appliance. No shame in my game, y’all. You can make about anything in those and I’d love to hug whoever came up with the genius invention. I’m convinced it was a farm or ranch wife.
If you are needing to feed a crew, I highly recommend these spuds. A few chicken breasts and a sack of potatoes can go along way, especially if you are trying to budget.
This is not a tractor friendly meal like his lunches and snacks are. Often times the girls and I will take Zack supper as that’s our only time together in the summer when hay is going on. Tailgate dinners have become our mobile kitchen table. I set up a little “fix it yourself” potato bar in the back of his truck for these.
Tip I learned from my mom: Cookie sheets are awesome for transporting. I also have a cooler bag I threw the “fixins” in that were already prepped in ziplock baggies. Get the squeezable sour cream and thank me later. Also, I have a container of plasticware, salt and pepper shaker, a roll of trash bags, and a package of baby wipes I leave in there. We always need them.
