HOW TO MAKE CROCK POT RED POTATOES
- Slice red potatoes then add to crockpot
- Add all remaining ingredients into slow cooker and stir until each potato is coated with the spice mixture
- Turn on high for 2-3 hours or low for 4-6 hours
- Add your favorite toppings when potatoes are crispy-brown
- Serve and Enjoy!
Using an Instant Pot instead of a crockpot is another great option - especially if you want to turn this recipe into a quick baked potato soup!
However, believe me when I say that slicing each red potato is 100% worth it!
WHAT BOTTLE OF OLIVE OIL DO I PICK?
However, here are a few helpful tips to pick a bottle:
- Pick a darker bottle since a dark container will keep out light, which can reduce the quality of the oil
- Choose a glass bottle since glass protects the oil from oxygen, which can decrease the health benefits
- Find a bottle from a lower shelf since oil stored on the bottom shelf will likely be exposed to less light
