I have a large family of 8 and we are all competitive martial artists so with training and classes and school and 6 kids and everything else. It's hard to quickly feed a family of 8 on a budget ! Recipes and ideas are appreciated and I'm addicted to my Slow Cooker ! Thanks !

Shit on a biscut.. Biscuts, hamburger meat, cream of mushroon soup(2 or 3 cans for your famiky). Bake bicuts, browm meat drain, mix meat cream of mushroom soup and as much milk as soup, simmer on low till like gravy. Serve over biscuts you can also mix veggie with it.

Spaghetti, pulled pork (2-4 lb pork roast and BBQ sauce in slow cooker 8 hr on low), homemade potato salad, big salads with meat added, taco soup (chicken broth, diced up chicken breast, diced tomatoes with their juice, corn, black beans, and taco and dry ranch seasoning packets).
Look at taste of home and check out their cooking for a crowd recipes. Some of them are awesome since you can reheat leftovers the next night.

shredded bbq chicken in your slow cooker, lasagnas, if you need something "on the go' you could make taco bags: doritos in the bag smashed up, add ground meat, shredded lettuce, shredded cheese, and a little salsa or hot sauce or whatever you add to your tacos. They just need a fork, you eat right out of the bag.

 I love pasta dishes for feeding a lot of people on the cheap.

I make a version of this with Jimmy Dean sausage. We call it SOS  .... S*** on a shingle. I put it over toast. Sometimes we use biscuits. It's an old Army meal.
