One of the best things about slow cooker recipes is that so many of them are really simple. There are literally hundreds of one dish dinners you can make in a crockpot. If it is important to you to feel your family healthy, nutritious and varied meals, the crockpot could well turn out to be your best friend.
As my experiment progressed, I added more foods that had the same effect. There are multitudes of dishes that are hot, spicy and flavorful: Kung pao chicken, curry, spicy ginger chicken, hot sausage stew, which is great on the grill by the way, all kinds of Mexican and Thai foods. On occasion, I would sprinkle a little cayenne pepper on grilled vegetables. What I found is it really doesn't take much to produce the desired result.
I had a Rolliburger sausage casserole and potato it was delicious. The meat was fresh and juicy, it was cooked perfectly (slightly red in the center), and topped off with crisp lettuce, tomatoes and onions, ketchup, mustard and mayo. I love cheeseburgers, and this is the best I've ever had.
I used about 2 lbs of chicken (bone-in simply because that is all I had) with an onion and a bit of red pepper, plus some chicken broth and spices. Cooked perfectly in 15 minutes. I just had to remove it from the bone and shred it and it was set to be served. I adhered to a slow cooker slow cooker sausage casserole frozen sausages that stated to cook it on low for eight hours, but I utilized the pressure cooker function for 15 minutes and it was juicy and yummy. I can't recommend this item enough.
Fry up a pound of slow cooker sausage casserole if you prefer meat in your egg bake. If I use sausage I add my onion, mushrooms and celery in with the meat. You don't have to precook your vegetables if you don't use meat, you can just add vegetables to the egg mixture.
Amy's Chili. Amy's brand makes a lot of delicious vegetarian foods, but her chili is top notch. It comes in a variety of flavors, all containing the TVP. I especially enjoy the black bean and use it to make nachos. It's a quick meak that is so like the real thing meat-eaters won't notice the difference. Amy's chili comes in a can and is found in the organic section or canned chili section of your supermarket.
Option: You can make this chili through the cooking stage and throw it in a large crock-pot or a small table-top roaster (like Rival) and let it cook all day while you play.
