These were lovely and a hit with all the family. I sprinkled season all salt over them and also finished with 30 min in the oven to brown them. A winner!!!!

The one extra tablespoon of butter goes into the cooking bowl … at the same time you’ve added the others spoons onto the potato … before cooking.

Please explain … Top each one with 1T butter (and one extra T of butter at the end into the slow cooker bowl) Do you put the one extra T of butter at the end of the bowl or at the end of the 4-5 hours cooking time?
