Does anyone have any crockpot recipes for feeding four?
Here are a couple of my favorites:
Mix onion soup mix with soup can full of water. Place all ingredients incrock pot. I cooked it on low all day.Serve over noodles. I used corn starch to thicken the sauce into somethingmore substantial, and added some peas to the noodles at the end of their cooking for added flavor.
Crock Pot Macaroni and Cheese
8 oz. macaroni or med shells, cooked al dente and drained
1-12 oz can of evaporated milk
1 1/2 cups milk
4 cups grated cheddar cheese
2 eggs, beaten
1 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. pepper
Cook noodles and drain. Combine all ingredients, reserving 1 cup of cheese and pour into crock pot that has been well-greased or sprayed with non stick spray. Sprinkle remaining cheese on top. Cook on low for 4-5 hours or until sides are golden. DO NOT STIR while it is cooking.
This is my ALL TIME FAVORITE:
Chicken (or pork) in the crockpot
Place one chicken breast per square of foil. Sprinkle with the dry mix, as much or little as you like. Wrap as little foil packets. Layer in crock pot (do NOT add any water). Cook on low 8-10 hours.
Comes out moist and juicy and yummy.I usually do 4-6 breasts at a time and save the extra dry mix in a zip bag for next time.
Chicken-fried Chops: I got this recipe from Country Living magazing - very easy and tasty!
1/2 cup flour
salt to taste
1 1/2 tsp ground mustard
1/2 tsp garlic powder
6 pork loin chops (3/4 inches thick)
In shallow bowl, combine flour, salt, mustard and garlic powder (Note: I added fresh ground back pepper). Dredge pork chops. In skillet, brown the chops on both sides in oil. Place in crock pot.Combine soup and water (Note: I added minced garlic and fresh ground black pepper). Pour over chops. Cover and cook on low for 6-8 hours or until meat is tender.The meat got super tender and was very tasty. My DH spooned the sauce over his rice for added flavor.
I have found that you can cook almost anything in the crockpot. The past three days I have cooked spaghetti, chili and today I put a roast in. One of our favorites is Ham and Potatoes.
Mix the milk, soup, ham and dash of pepper together. Put half potatoes in bottom of crockpot. On top of that put half of the onions. Pour half of soup mixture on top. Repeat the layers. Cook on low for 6-8 hours until done. I usually spray the crockpot before hand so the ingredients don't stick. I serve with green peas, jello salad and rolls. (01/06/2001)
