Crock-Pot Baked Potatoes

For real!....Crock-Pot baked potatoes.  Who knew?  I'm learning that Crock-Pots aren't just for roasts!  I'm really amazed by all the unique Crock-Pot recipes out there.  So, anyway I made these Crock-Potted....aren't I funny...potatoes and they were good; tasted like a baked potato.  Really nothing special about them other than I loved the fact that I didn't have fire up the oven and heat up the house to achieve my goal. 

I found the recipe here.
Did I really need another cookbook?
