Servings 8


  • 2 pounds gold potatoes or potato of choice
  • ¼ cup avocado oil
  • 1 tablespoon kosher salt


  • Wash and dry potato and pierce several times on each side with fork
  • Add to large bowl and toss with avocado oil and salt
  • Wrap each potato in a piece of foil and place in slow cooker
  • Cover and cook on high for 4 hours or low for 8 or until fork tender
  • Serve topped with butter, cheese, sour cream or as desired


I prefer avocado oil to olive oil in this recipe for the milder flavor.  Avocado oil also doesn't burn quite as quickly as olive oil so it's perfect if you aren't monitoring the slow cooker all day.
