This is officially the Trick or Treat Month …So Naomi Blackburn of the Pub n’ Grub Forum has cooked up a little of both for us here at Mid-Week Mixers. With a tongue-in-cheek grin she suggested a month of tasty tidbits “So easy that even Bette can make them”

Now, the word is out and the world officially knows I am what’s called a “Kitchen-Klutz.”  I never even attempt to cook anything that has more than five ingredients…but in the case of the Drunken Pork Chops that will be making their appearance on October 17th, I’m making an exception. Yep, this month we are in for some yummy treats that are so easy…yes, even I can make them. ~sheepish grin~


I love the simplicity of this recipe. This is so simple because it is basically 3 ingredients wrapped up and placed in a crockpot to cook for the day.Since I switched to Paula Deen’s House Seasoning, it has become even simpler. I have prepared the potatoes the night before and threw them in the crock on my way out for the day. It is even easy to increase the number of potatoes and all that the preparer needs to do is make sure the crock can handle all the potatoes!

So, here we go:

Baking potatoes
Olive oil
Paula Deen’s House Seasoning


1) Cut number of tinfoil sheets to the number of potatoes
2) Thoroughly wash and scrub potatoes. Dry
3) Poke potatoes with fork
4) Place potatoes on tinfoil sheets and cover with approx. 1 tablespoon of olive oil per potato. Then sprinkle with House Seasoning. Wrap

5) Place in Crockpot and cook on LOW for 8-10 hours. Potatoes are finished when a knife goes through potato easily.
6) Top with your favorite toppings.

Note: If my potatoes have finished before the rest of my meal, I have been known to take them out of the crockpot and put them in a 170 degree oven until rest of meal is done.
