Cool about thawing the bags.

Today I made a large thick ham slice in the crock pot. I trimmed and saut?ed it a bit first, then saut?ed some onion, garlic and celery. Put all of it in a crock pot, added rosemary, a touch of thyme and a tablespoon or so of dried parsley. Delish.

After we had some for dinner I added some collard greens to the leftovers and now have several servings of soup.

Has anyone ever tried a turkey breast cooked in the crock pot?  I wonder how that would work out.

LOVE my crock pot!  I use it constantly.

My favorite roast recipe is:  Chuck Roast, 1 stick of butter, package of dry Hidden Valley ranch dressing, McCormick Au Jus mix and 5 pepperoncini peppers.

Put the roast in the bottom, sprinkle with the ranch, then add the Au Jus mix.  Lay the stick of butter on top of the roast and the 5 peppers.  Do not add water.  Cook on low for 7-8 hours.  It's yummy yummy.

I recently found a recipe for turkey breast cooked in a crockpot. Since it will be just my husband and me for Thanksgiving, this sounds like the way to go. Put 1 chopped onion and 1 chopped celery rib in the bottom of a 4-5 quart crockpot. Place a 5-6 lb. bone-in and skin on turkey breast on top and pour 1/4 cup of melted butter over the turkey. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Add 1 cup of chicken broth and 1 cup of white wine (or 2 cups of chicken broth.) Cover and cook on low for 5-7 hours or until meat thermometer registers 165 degrees. I haven't tried it yet, but it sounds like it should work. The breast probably won't brown, but I think the turkey should be really moist.

Since this is the holiday season, and I make more sweets during this time, I also make caramel in my crock pot.  It's yummy and easy.  Buy sweetened condensed milk in a can. Just remove the label off the can and put into your slow cooker. Place it on a small plate or in a glass container. Fill the slow cooker with water until it covers the cans. Cook on low for 8 hours. Open cans and you have yourself some caramel!

I love my crock pot. My favorite is the roast with the potatoes, carrots, onions, etc.

Can all of you imagine if this is what Caroline would do with a crock pot, what she would do with a pressure cooker??  :o ??? :-X :-\

Oh and I got a recipe this week for lasagna soup in the crock pot!  I'm going to make it first and then I'll post it if it's any good.

One time my Grandma cooked the can of condensed milk on the stove in a pan w/water.  My sister got a phone call from Grandma, "can you come over and help me clean caramel off the kitchen ceiling, the pan went dry and the can exploded!".   :o  :o  :o

Thankfully, Grandma didn't get hurt by the exploding can.

Oops!!

It was awesome. I cut the butter way down, though, because the meat was fairly fatty. For those who would eliminate it altogether, DON'T. It creates this nice, thin browned crust on the outside of the roast.

Glad you liked it.  Also, don't ever try using the "fake" butter.  I tried it once and it's not the same.
