Crock Pot Baked Potato Bar

Whenever we do a baked potato bar for dinner I always have the happiest family on the planet! Everyone can make their own and they love them! Plus, when you use your Crock Pot for the potatoes, it's a super easy dinner, too!

** For six potatoes I used my 6-quart slow cooker and it was perfect.
