Thanks, I'm a crock pot newbie.

I love to do Barbeque beef ribs in the pot. I use a dry rub on the ribs and then put them in the crock pot, I let them cook all day, at the last I take them out, pour barbeque sauce on them and put them under the broiler to darken them up. They melt in your mouth and people are lost in wonderment at my barbeque skills.

When we lived in New England my Mother would make Stew, she would just throw whatever meat she had in with some vegies, maybe a little broth, bay leaf and so forth.

Its also a great way to make chili or pasta sauce because these items need to be cooked for a long time. I have also made a New England boiled dinner in it, a corned beef roast, cabbage and new potatos, good eating.

Crock Pot Lasagna
From Every Kitchen Tells Its Stories
Hands-on time: 15 minutes
Total Cooking time: 5-6 hours
Serves 8 and freezes well

Ingredients:
1 box precooked lasagna noodles (12 noodles)
4 cups torn spinach
2 cups sliced cremini mushrooms
½ cup pesto
¾ cup mozzarella, shredded (3 oz)
¾ cup provolone, shredded (3 oz)
15 oz ricotta cheese
1 large egg, beaten
¾ cup parmesan cheese
6 cups tomato-basil sauce
2 cups thinly sliced pepperoni (optional)

Directions:
1. Steam or microwave spinach until it wilts. Drain, squeeze dry and chop.

2. Combine cooked spinach, raw mushrooms & pesto in medium bowl and set aside.

3. Combine cheeses with beaten egg in separate bowl

4. Pour the sauce in another bowl.

5. In 6 quart electric crock pot layer ingredients as follows:
Layer of sauce (just enough to lightly cover the bottom of the pot
Layer of noodles (3)
Layer of cheese mixture (1/3)
Layer of spinach mushroom mixture (1/3)
Layer of pepperoni (1/3) optional
Layer of sauce (1/3)
Repeat layering two more times
Sprinkle with ½ cup more parmesan
6. Cover with lid and cook on LOW for 5 hours or until done.
7. Sprinkle with ½ cup more Parmesan cheese for the last 15 minutes of cooking.

Tips & Variations

This recipe really does freeze well. Just divide it up into 1-2 serving portions first.

I used my own Lazy Tomato Sauce recipe but you can try experimenting with different bottled sauce mixes like tomato and roasted garlic or add some crushed dried chili pepper flakes for some heat.

It goes great with a salad and some garlic bread or toasted focaccia slices with pesto and melted cheese.


Haven't made this yet...but I am going to. Got it from one of my favorite food blogs:

Default Turkey Breast Crock Pot Recipe

Here's a really easy recipe:
Put a whole turkey breast in a crock pot (a full turkey also works, just make sure it's small enough to fit in the crock pot).
Cut up/slice 1 onion and place around turkey. Add 2 teaspoons minced garlic ( we love garlic, so I usually put a bit more). Then put in a small amount of water, about 1/2 cup, just to cover the bottom. Cook on low 8-10 hours (depends on size) and enjoy!!!

I don't have anything to share other than when I saw the subject, I initially thought it said "Crackpot Dinners" and I came in here wondering what kind of crazy food I was going to see.
