i got a 7qt slow cooker.
never had one before.
saw recipes online but i like first-hand advice someone has tried.
we're not huge fans of powdered onion soup.
looking for any recipe, but especially something that can be scaled up to the big crockpot.
healthier stuff is a plus. also simple ones might be fun.
thx

Go to the library and check out Beth Hensperger's "Not Your Mother's Slow Cooker Cookbook." Great recipes, no powdered, or canned, or other type of obnoxious soup. The pot roast is especially good.

Someone on this forum posted this a long time ago. I have made it many times and really enjoy it.


Chicken Stew

Nine cups water
Ten chicken boullion cubes
Four boneless/skinless chicken breasts, cubed
One 8 ounce box wild rice (the real stuff, not those "blends")
One small yellow onion, minced
15-20 baby carrots, cut into chunks (1½ C)
15-20 celery sticks (or 3-4 full stalks), cut into chunks (1½ C)
1 tablespoon salt (Note: I cut the salt to 1 tsp.)
One pint heavy cream

Toss everything except the cream into a slow cooker and set on an 8 or 10 hour cook cycle. Go to work. On your way home, stop at the local mom-and-pop bakery and pick up a loaf of crusty French bread (or equivalent). Once you get home, stir the cream into the soup. Serve with crudely-torn chunk of bread and some VERY cold iced tea.

Makes probably 8-10 normal sized bowls so adjust as you deem necessary.

Butterbeans (large limas) and (pork) neck bones turn out very well when cooked in a crock pot. Unless you like gnawing on bones and watching out for less appetizing bits while eating, though, it's best to put the neck bones in a cheesecloth bag while cooking and then remove the meat from the bones and add it back to the butterbeans once they're done.

You can also substitute the "15 bean soup mix" for the butterbeans, but discard at least half of the included seasoning packet or it will be far too salty.

Mac n Cheese Crockpot Recipe

2 cans of evaporated milk
2 cans of condensed cheese soup
2.5 cups water
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. dry mustard
1/8 tsp. cayenne pepper
2 cups shredded sharp cheddar cheese
2 cups shredded Monterrey jack cheese
1 lb. elbow macaroni (but you can use just about anything that is stabable)

Bring milk, cheese soup water, salt, dry mustard, cayenne pepper to a bubbling simmer. You will want so stir frequently to prevent burning.

Spray the crock pot liner with with pam or another oil spray.

Once the liquid mixture is simmering, slowly whisk in the cheddar and Monterrey jack cheese until the mixture is smooth.

After the cheese is melted stir in the dry pasta. Pour liquid and pasta from pot into the crock pot liner. Stir the mixture in crock pot liner to make sure all pasta is covered in sauce. Set crock pot to high and let cook for 2 hours.

You will want to stir the contents of the crock pot 2 or three times during its cooking cycle. You may find it necessary to add a small amount of hot water to the crock pot when you do stir the pasta mixture.

After 2 hours is over, season to taste with salt and pepper and serve.

A nice, cheap, tough pork loin. Onions, garlic, a little vinegar and tomato sauce. Start at midnight, shred and apply to toasted hamburger buns for lunch: delicious!
