Slow Cooker Top Ten {The Best Slow Cooker Recipes}

Posted in dinner, Recipes by

My slow cooker is probably my most favorite kitchen gadget (after the coffee maker, of course). It makes me so happy to know that I can just dump a bunch of things in it and go about my busy day and come back to a fully cooked, ready to serve, meal.

But, so many slow cooker recipes involve cream of something soup and end up like big blobs of mush. So I set out to find some really delicious and unique things I could make in the crock pot. And boy did I find the BEST slow cooker recipes ever! They’re all easy to make (no wacky ingredients) and are so yummy that everyone in your family will love them. Here are my Top Ten Favorite Slow Cooker Recipes. I think you’ll love them all as much as I do!

    Oooh, crockpot lasagna! I grew up on all homemade Italian food! It’s my favorite to cook! I’ll have to try this! The vegetable beef soup looks good too. I’m excited to check more of these out, I almost always do chili or chicken casserole in the crock pot and I definitely need some new ideas!

    I love my slow cooker, it’s fab for busy workers, put it on and come home to freshly cooked food. These are great recipes x

      Totally agree. And it’s great when schedules don’t match up bc everyone gets a hot meal no matter when they’re eating!

    They all look divine but sadly I am a veggie! Unless the 7-can soup is a veggie option then I am game!

      What are some veggie friendly recipes for the crockpot (other than a veggie chili)?

    Totally have the crock pot right now and plan to do some cooking this weekend with it for meal prep. Always wanted to make crock pot lasagna so I might just have to give your recipe a try!

    I am not very creative with my crock pot, stews and beans are about it. I need to get more creative. Thanks for sharing on the #HomeMattersParty . I hope you will join us again next week.

    You are right most slow cooker recipes involve cream of something and I don’t use cream of anything because they usually come in a metal can. I’m looking forward to checking out the recipes you recommended. I think I might try lentil soup (without the sausage) next week.

    In the past year, I’ve really tried to embrace the crockpot! haha — Growing up, my mom’s crockpot meals were never appealing so I swore it away. My husband convinced me to revisit it and I’m happy to say I’ve had some great meals from ours. Adding a few of these to my list of “to-trys” Thanks!

    I love my slow cooker but don’t use it as much as I could/should! I want to compile some vegetarian recipes to prepack & freeze!
