Wouldn’t it be absolutely magical if you could just dump a bunch of ingredients in a pot and…POOF!…dinner was ready in a matter of hours?
Cue the glitter and magical unicorns, man, because this is what I’m giving you today! A round-up of crockpot recipes from around the web, tested and approved by hungry Williby kids.
Without further ado, here ya go…
One Pot Wonders
Crockpot Cabbage Casserole — OK, OK. I know I’m throwing a weird one at you right off the bat, but bear with me. I found this one a couple years ago when I was on a healthy eating, whole foods, 21-day fix kick. Fat lotta good that did me, amiright? Anyway, this really is delicious. I up the amount of meat to 1.5-ish lbs since my grocery store seems to only sell packages larger than one pound. I also tend to add more carrots than called for. Definitely don’t skip the soy sauce condiment when you serve it! And it goes great with the world’s best applesauce.
Slow Cooker Chicken Burrito Bowl — Can you measure spices? Can you open cans? Yes? Then you can make this family-pleasing favorite. All of the flavors of taco night, but without the muss and fuss. The one thing I change about this recipe, though, is that I use boneless skinless chicken thighs. The thighs have a bit more flavor and don’t dry out like white meat. Serve with all of the usual taco bar suspects.
Slow Cooker Stuffed Peppers — OK, now granted, these take a little more prep work, but they are totally worth it. If you like stuffed peppers, that is. If you don’t, just keep scrolling. These beauties are a great way to get some extra veggies into your kiddos and they are super filling!
Crockpot Cube Steak & Gravy — No link for this one, kids. Just gather up a large package of cube steaks (I usually make 6 or 8), 2 cans cream of mushroom soup, 1 envelope onion soup mix, and 3/4 cup of water. Salt & pepper the meat and place it in the bottom of the crock. Mix together the rest of the ingredients and pour over the meat. Cook on low for about 8-10 hours. Serve with a green veggie and either hot buttered noodles or some mashed potatoes (store-bought are A-OK in my book!).
The Whole Kit & Caboodle
Just as a review, here were the other installments in our recipe roundup…
There you have it! If you print out all of these recipes, you’ll pretty much have my entire crockpot recipe binder. And, if I’m honest, that’s the one that gets the most frequent use (besides the one for desserts, anyway).
