What is my favorite appliance in my kitchen? Aside from my Kitchen Aid Mixer, it’s my Crockpot! I love how I can throw a variety of ingredients into the pot, leave for work and come home to a delicious supper. Some recipes like chili and pulled pork are the most common suppers to make in a crockpot, but today I want to expand your horizons. Here is a list of the top ten coolest, most creative suppers you can make in a crock pot!

1. Stuffed Peppers

Stuffed peppers can be made hours ahead of supper and ready for you when your stomach grumbles. Add some taco seasoning and guacamole for a Mexican twist.

3. Baked Potatoes

Baked potatoes can sometimes take forever in the oven, especially when you throw them in last minute. If you think ahead, though, you can add them to your crock pot, so they’re ready before anything else!

11. Ham

You can cook pretty much anything in a crock pot — even meat! So, next time that you have people over, think about slow cooking your ham instead of roasting it in the over.
