Friday Fast Five- 5 things I have recently made in my Crockpot

So now the weather is finally cooling off here in the South. So I am using one of my favorite kitchen appliances again. My crock pot! I have made several yummy yet easy things in it lately. Here are 5 of them.

  1. Ham & Beans. This "recipe" is a treasured one from my dear friend Amy. I love the simplicity of it. I stick it all in the crockpot and whip up some cornbread and "Wall-la" dinner:) Here is the "Recipe" : 3 cans of Pinto Beans, 1 can Rotel ( I run mine through my food processor first, cause I don't like chunks!), and a large ham steak cubed. I have substituted the ham steak for pork remnants which are easy to find and cheap here in the south, you could also use a Ham Bone if you ever happen to have that handy;)
  2. Bear Creek Soups! You may remember these from last year's post. All these soups are SO tasty and easy to jazz up with a little meat. Stick in CrockPot and Done!
  3. Baked Potatoes! These were SO easy. I washed my potatoes, wrapped individually in foil, and then put in Crockpot on low for about 6 hours. Perfect Baked Potatoes with NO effort required. We topped ours with chili & cheese and made a lunch out of them, but I am sure they will be reappearing as a side sometime in the near future.
  4. Beef Stroganoff. I simply took my favorite Stroganoff recipe and put the stew meat & wet ingredients (minus sour cream!) in the crock pot on low. I then cooked the noodles and added the sour cream right before serving. My recipe came from Gooseberry patch and I was unable to locate it online, so if you are dying to have it please comment me and I will see what I can do.
  5. Hawaiian BBQ Chicken. This is one that has been floating around on Pintrest. I served it over rice. Steve and I really enjoyed it, the kids not as much:/ It was actually surprisingly spicy! You can find the blog and recipe here.
Sorry there are not any pics this week. Forgot to photograph my dishes. Not that Stroganoff or Baked potatoes are that photogenic anyway;)

I love that your crock pot recipes are so easy. We love crock pot meals. In fact, I served potato soup and chili in crock pots at my Halloween party. Yum! Nothing like a thick soup to make THE best comfort foods!
