Top 10 Slow Cooker Potluck Dishes
While I catch my breath after finishing up the first week of school (I have a middle schooler now! how on earth did that happen?), please enjoy this potluck round-up from the archives. This was originally posted on 5/24/2011. Have an absolutely wonderful Labor Day weekend! I'll be back bright and early Tuesday morning with a surprise! oxxo steph ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ We're approaching a 3-Day weekend, and many of us will be attending barbecues, picnics, and family events. Don't arrive empty-handed! Instead, load up your slow cooker with one of the following crowd-pleasing dishes. I've listed the recipes in countdown order--- if you have a favorite, please chime in below. Happy Labor Day! 10) Salsa Chicken and Black Bean Soup . This is filling, delicious, and is different enough to gain lots of attention on the buffet table. Easy to stretch by serving rice, and fixen's like sliced avocado and tortilla chips. 9) Lima Bean Casserole Cassoulet . I love serving this to guests and listening to the conversation. "what type of beans are these?" "I'm not sure. some sort of large pinto beans or something?" I usually wait until the pot is practically empty before coming clean that they were lima beans. 8) Honey Lentils. Delicious, nutritious, vegan vegetarian, and such a fun offering to bring to a picnic. I get the nicest emails about these lentils! 7) Pesto Spinach Lasagna . I need to run to the store to pick up the ingredients for this! You have never had a better vegetarian lasagna. So so good. 6) Hirino Psito. This is a wonderful main dish to serve to guests. Worcestershire sauce, dijon mustard, and beer mix together to create a savory sauce that perfectly compliments the sweet contrast of brown sugar and cranberries. Win! 5) Brie with Apricot Topping . To make this more user-friendly for guests, insert an oven-safe dish into your large slow cooker and load the ingredients into the dish. Then remove the dish (use mitts!) and serve with your favorite crackers (we like Glutino a lot). Do not add water in the crockpot around the dish. 4) Pomegranate Beef. When we host a dinner for new friends, I usually make this. This keeps picky older relatives happy, along with the kids (note to self: I need to update some of these photos!). I've made this for television audiences, and served it at the Disneyland Food & Wine Festival, where the kitchen chefs gave rave reviews, which made me cry. This recipe was also featured on Oprah.com! 3) Cream Cheese, Sausage, and Rotel Dip (mommy crack). The ingredients are odd, the taste is not. Make this and you'll be happy. 2) Potluck Beans. We can't have a potluck countdown without potluck beans, now can we? These beans have bacon. Nuff' said. 1) Original Taco Soup . Feeds a bunch, easy to throw together, and everyone LOVES it. This has been our number one potluck bring along for the past 12 years. Honorable mention: Black Beans with Cilantro . I ran out of numbers--- this is a great bean recipe. Enjoy your long weekend! . . . . Make sure to visit my store page for my books, recommended slow cookers, and other fun slow-cooking stuff. Thank you for your support! --steph
