If you're like many busy people, you love the idea of coming home after a long day to the aroma of a lovely meal waiting for you. If you've got a slow cooker, there are plenty of ways to make this happen. Following are just three of the many slow cooker meals that residents of apartments in Flagstaff can put together in the morning and come home to at the end of the day.
Slow Cooker Meals
Chicken and Dumplings
You'll need chicken broth, cream of chicken soup, chopped onions, minced garlic, small red potatoes, baby carrots, chunks of chicken and baking mix. Combine all of the ingredients except the baking mix and let them cook in the slow cooker for eight hours. Make dumplings from the baking mix, drop them into the mixture and cook for an additional 15 minutes or until the dumplings are done.
Potato and Bacon Soup
Combine chicken broth, cream of celery soup, minced garlic, chopped green onions and chunks of Yukon Gold potatoes in your slow cooker. Stir in bacon bits and sour cream and cook for another 20 minutes. Some people like to add an 8-ounce package of cream cheese for extra texture. Top the soup with chopped chives right before serving.
Slow Cooker Lasagna
Just like regular lasagna, slow cooker lasagna can be made in a variety of ways. The important thing to remember is that when you make it in a slow cooker, you don't have to boil the noodles prior to putting the lasagna together. However, you should still brown any meat that you choose to include. After browning the meat, simply layer your favorite lasagna ingredients in the slow cooker and cook on low heat for seven or eight hours.
