  • I just made cream of potato soup today --
    Half a bag of potatoes chopped, cubed, however you like them
    Two cans/boxes chicken broth or veggie stock
    Celery or asparagus (or both!)
    A whole yellow onion chopped finely
    One large carton of half and half
    Garlic, salt, pepper to taste (celery salt is good, too)
    When potatoes are done, mash a few into the soup to create the consistency you like
    Top with cheese, sour cream, bacon bits, chives, paprika, whatever you wish!

  • My family LOVES this!! Hope yours does too!! I actually got it here from another Cafe Mom, but all I have to give her credit by is who she's the proud mommy of. Anyway, here ya go:

    Crockpot Pizza

    : 1 pound ground meat (I use sausage)
    : 16 oz shredded mozzarella cheese (I use a bit more)
    : 1/4-1/2 cup chopped onion
    : 1/4 cup chopped green peppers
    : 1 pack sliced pepperoni
    : 2/3 of a box rigatoni noodles cooked
    : 1 can mushrooms or fresh
    : 2 jars pizza sauce about 12 to 16 ozs each


    Layer the ingredients in a buttered crock pot as follows: meat, noodles, cheese, sauce, mushrooms, onions, peppers, pepperoni and sauce. Ending with cheese. Cover and cook on LOW for about 3-4 hours you are just heating it through.

    I add whatever toppings I happen to have on hand at the time. Anything you like on your pizza works great!

  • oh my, these both sound soooo good!!

    My fave thing to make is chili. It is super easy just brown a lb of sirloin, chop up 1 med. onion and 1 med. green pepper. Add to 2 large cans of tomato sauce (or stewed tomatoes if you like it chunky) 1 can kidney beans and 1 can chili hot beans. I add a package of chili mix and then I also spice it up with extra cumin, chili powder, garlic powder, onion powder and salt. Cook on high for 5 hours to cook the veggies and you have fabulous chili that lasts for a couple of days!

  • Shredded barbecue beef sandwiches. Pop "slow cooker bbq beef" into google and you'll find a lot of recipes.
    I also made a veggie beef soup with cooked hamburger, a bag of frozen veggies, canned tomatoes, beef broth and some water. My kids loved it. you can google "slow cooker vegetable beef stew" for the recipe too.

  • Veggie Soup. Fry up a pound of hamburger. In your crockpot put a bag of frozen mixed veggies, slice up some potatoes and add them, beef bouillon, water and spices and herbs to taste. Add hamburger to crockpot. Cook on high about 4 hours.

    Cut up roundsteak into pieces and brown it in a frying pan. Add 2 cans mushroom soup, 1 package onion soup mix and water to crockpot. Put steak in and cook on high 5 or 6 hours. Serve with potatoes, noodles or rice

  • I have a bunch. A good crock pot cook book is the Fix-It and Forget It one. There's a few in the series and we use it all the time.
    One of my favorites is Chinese Beef and Peppers which I modified from 2 different recipes.
    Essentially it's stir fry meat (browned in soy sauce on the stove), sliced green peppers, onion, celery, brown rice, soy sauce and water in the pot. Cook until the rice is soft. I found that adding the green peppers towards the end keeps them from turning to mush.
