If we could only have one appliance in our kitchen, we would want it to be a slow cooker.
Given the right ingredients, and a little time, it seems like there is nothing this little wonder won’t do. You can start your day with a set-it-and-forget-it slow cooker breakfast. We’d suggest a Tomato-Herb Frittata, or a Sweet Potato Breakfast Casserole. The casserole will take about three-and-a-half hours in the slow cooker, so think of it as the perfect brunch. When you’re ready for lunch, let your slow cooker do the work with some Uncle Jack’s Mac-and-Cheese, or a pot of Beef-and-Bean Chili. These are two of our best easy slow-cooker recipes.
When you really want your slow cooker to create something Southern, it can work wonders on some Andouille Sausage Jambalaya with Shrimp, or some Slow-Cooker Red Beans and Rice. Since you can get your slow cooker recipes ready to go, then leave them to simmer away, it makes it easy to make dishes that would normally require a lot of time and attention. Imagine devouring some Easy BBQ Ribs without having to hover over your grill all day. Sounds perfect.
