25 Slow Cooker Recipes

The last time I was at Bunco, one of my friends commented, “I really need some good slow cooker recipes.”

That prompted me to think: Don’t we all? My family would not be eating if we weren’t using our slow cooker this month. We have evening activities every night of the week.

The problem is, it can be hard to find a quick and healthy slow cooker recipe that doesn’t feature a whole lot of “packet of this” or “can-a-cream-a-that” but instead features healthy, quality ingredients. So I set out to collect slow cooker recipes that not only taste great, but use the ingredients I want to serve to my family.

The list below is the result of my asking my online friends for their best slow cooker healthy recipes as well as combing the web for great slow cooker recipes that I’m proud to pass on and share. I haven’t cooked every recipe, but I have been making my way through the list. Anything I’ve cooked that I’ve tweaked, I’ve noted it next to the recipe.
