I do use my crockpot often, but I rarely use recipes that call for dairy.

What is the best way to use dairy in the crockpot?  

Should I add it near the end and heat just until everything is hot again? 

I have seen many recipes that call for the dairy to cook as long as everything else.


Thanks!!

 I was always told to be careful.

 Sudden change like cold water added or makes can make a crockpot bust.?

General rule of thumb is add dairy during the last half an hour of cooking in the CP. Otherwise it tends to curdle.

I don't know how I missed this post for so long. lol This what I have always been told. But if the recipe calls for the dairy to cook as part of the moisture needed in the recipe, I would try it their way first.
