Simple Crock Pot Recipes

By  | 

Are you looking for easy crock pot recipes to try? I have a crock pot, but I rarely use it, which seems a little silly, doesn’t it? I’ve found a few recipes that will encourage me (and maybe you too) to use this magical appliance more often.

Simple Crock Pot Recipes

What’s different about this list of “simple crock pot recipes,” you might ask?

First, I made sure that these recipes had minimal prep time. Sure, they might require some chopping, washing, or mixing, but this can easily be done the night before once the kids go to bed.

Second, these recipes have very long cooking times, meaning you can let the crock pot work all day while you do, and dinner will be ready when you need it! As a side note, here are some crock pot cooking tips – this will help you determine how, if at all, you can change cooking times to suit your needs.

The result? A list of truly hassle-free crock pot recipes you have to try!
