Do You Have an Easy Crockpot Recipe to Share?

Saturday, August 31, 2013

I have Kindle cookbooks, but all of the recipes require cooking something beforehand. Does anyone have a simple recipe where you just throw the stuff in and uncover it hours later?
I'd appreciate it.

Have a happy, healthy holiday weekend.

    In today's SP recipe email there was a crockpot recipe, also it had a list of recipe collection on the lower right hand side. You'll have to copy and paste the following link:

    I usually use the crockpot more in the winter, Hubby grills outside during the summer, so right now I cannot remember one single recipe. It seems life you got some great suggestions to find recipes. I usually do a search on SP or Google then blend recipes into my own.

    I don't cook anything before adding it to the crockpot either. I mix any herbs or spices i'm using into the liquid--wine, water, juice, broth, spray the inside of the crock pot with nonstick spray, put in the beef, chicken or pork and then the veggies and poor the liquid over. No recipe.

    I have found recipes on line and have you checked SP recipes for crockpot or slow cooker suggestions.

    Sorry I couldn't be more help.

    I don't cook anything before putting in the crock pot.
    Definitely check the internet. In a search engine type
    in crockpot recipes. You get LOTS of information.

    I buy grill mates marinade packets, mix them up in the crockpot with only 2 Tbls of olive oil, and a lb of boneless skinless chicken breast. At the end of the day, I use 2 forks to shred the chicken and stir it all up. We vary it by serving it over rice, on a bun, wrapped in a tortilla or pita, putting it over baked potatoes, etc. Quick and easy and very tasty.

    Not sure if the link will work, but I will try. This is a Spark Recipe for Slow Cooker Salsa Chicken. It's very easy, and it's great over rice, or in a taco or burrito.

    While I can't eat lots of things in the meatloaf recipe, it sounds like something Jim would love. I'm going to show it to him.

    Can't wait to try that one, Gloria. Probably tomorrow!

    Have you checked out and entered Crockpot as a search item. I did and there are over 500 recipes on there. Not sure if I can post the link here. Will try.

    You will probably have to copy & paste that one. Good Luck & hope you find lots of happy eating!

    ~ Crockpot Meatloaf & Potatoes ~

    2.5 pounds of ground turkey (or beef, if you prefer)
    1 egg
    3/4 cup smashed cornflakes or bread crumbs ( but I prefer corn flakes)
    1 envelope of Lipton onion soup mix
    1/4 cup Worcestershire sauce
    salt, pepper, paprika, garlic salt, Italian seasoning to taste.
    Mix the ingredients well and form a “loaf” in the bottom of your crock pot.

    Then, wash 5-6 potatoes, prick them with a knife or fork, and wrap them in foil. Place them around the meatloaf. Cook for 8-10 hours on low.

    I hope this helps, I have a lot of crockpot meals.
    Have a nice weekend!
