I got this Fix it and forget-it 5 ingredient favorites comforting slow-cooker recipes cook book off of QVC and it has some wonderful recipes in it and they are ALL so easy. So far all the dishes I have tried have been very good.

One of my favorites is "Chicken Broccoli Alfredo"
Makes 4 servings....Prep time 30 min. Cooking time 1-2 hours

8oz. pkg, noodles, or spaghetti (half a 16 oz. pkg.)
1 1/2 cups of fresh or frozen broccoli
1 lb. uncooked boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cubed.
10 oz. can of cream of mushroom soup
1/2 cup grated mild cheddar cheese

1. cook noodles according to package directions, adding broccoli during the last 4 minutes of the cooking time.
Drain
2. Saute the chicken in a non-stick skillet, or in the microwave, until no longer pink in the center.
3. Combine all ingredients in slow cooker.
4. Cover and cook on low 1-2 hours, or until heated through and until cheese is melted.

This IS a great thread. I am not going camping, but those crock pot dinners come in so handy with working a full day and having a kid to feed.

I put either a pork tenderloin or chops in my crock pot (usually brown first on the stove, but I am not sure it actually makes a difference) and then add a can of chicken stock. Let it cook for several hours and it will pull apart. Then I add in a bottle of BBQ sauce (depending on the taste of the sauce I may add some spices) to warm and serve over nice buns for a yummy pulled pork sandwich. Serve with baked beans and cole slaw. Easy and good!

Required: aluminum foil
paper towels
long fire tongs
Ingredients: Serves One:
1/4 lb. hamburger
1 potato
1 carrot
katchup or BBQ sauce
1/4 onion, optional

Seasoning: salt, pepper, ...

Notes: Create a foil wrapper for each person by sandwiching a wet paper towel between two squares of foil. This will help even the heat and prevent burning.
Instructions: Wash, peel, and dice the vegetables.
With clean fingers, pull the hamburger into bits and place on foil wrapper.
Season hamburger and add vegetables and sauce as desired.
Fold foil into a flat package sealed well.
Place the dinner on coals.
Cook for 10 minutes, then flip and cook 10 more.
Unwrap and check one dinner to see if they are done.

I do this many different ways. You can do it on campfire or grill (gas or charcoal) --adjust time for grill (may need a little longer depending on heat). Also for an alternative to red meat, use boneless chicken breast and cream of chicken or cream of mushroom soup (dont mix w/water, just straight from can) instead of katchup or bbq sauce. For chicken times may also need to slightly increase depending on temp and size of chicken. I had one huge piece of chicken that I did for my husband on gas grill and it needed about 40 min total (20 on each side)

**also make sure 2 layers of tin foil and paper towel in between.. I made the mistake of not doing this once and it burned the bottom of the meat (meat stuck to tin foil)...

***I have also veried ground beef and put a little chopped onion and green pepper and a little bread cumbs and an egg and shaped it in an oblong patty and put on bottom and placed veggies on top and used some canned meat loaf fixing sauce and pour that over it... mmmmm good... It's like your own personal meat loaf.... (also lengthen time for this as well)

ENJOY.....

how do you do baked potatoes in a crockpot?

ham

We have been taking a spiral cut ham and cook it the day before we go on our trips. This is for those that might drive overnight. We take the meat off the bone and have lots of nice sandwich meat.

Jim

Of course you could alwyas add some of this to mac and cheese or make a nice ham/pasta salad.

Homemade chicken and rice soup. I save the drippings from when I roast a chicken in a freezer bag along with some bits of chicken, take it out of the freezer, put in large pan, add a large can of chicken stock, 2 cups of cooked minute rice, garlic and salt and pepper to taste. Great tasty, quick camping lunch.

Mayo

We also bring our small george foreman grill to the resorts to make grilled cheese, french toast and other items in our room when we bring the teenagers who are always hungry.

My family recently relocated from the west coast to the east coast. Because we have kids that were going to be starting school the following fall--we moved in May---we knew we wanted to be in a house by school. We decided camping would be a fun way to spend the summer while looking for a house, not to mention providing us flexibilty for a quick close. So our entire family camped, in tents, for 4 months. I quickly found out you can cook pretty much anything in a crockpot. I have tons of suggestions for crock pot ideas for every meal. We'd wake up to flavored oatmeals or baked apples, and come home after the beach and have french dips, chicken teriyaki, etc. One of my family's favorites was baked ziti. Here is a recipe for that.

1 pound ground beef--(you can also use sausage if you prefer, and to attempt to make this a little healthier, morningstar farms makes sausage crumbles that are vegetarian and low fat, but I swear even the most carniverous wouldn't know it, and as a bonus it doesn't really need to be browned beforehand.)
1 medium onion
2 tsps. dried Italian seasoning
1/2 tsp. salt
2 jars (apx. 25 oz. each) pasta sauce
1 container (15 oz.) ricotta cheese
2 cups mozzarella cheese, divided
1 cups grated Parmesan cheese
1 box (10 oz.) ziti noodles

Cook ground beef and onions in a large skillet over medium-high
heat, stirring occasionally, until beef is no longer pink. Stir in
seasonings to evenly coat meat; stir in pasta sauce. Set aside.

Mix 1 cup mozzarella, the ricotta and Parmesan in a medium bowl.
Spoon 2 cups of meat sauce into 5 - 6 qt. slow cooker. Top with 2
cups ziti. Drop half of the cheese mixture, by rounded tablespoons,
over ziti; carefully spread over ziti using back of spoon. Layer
with 2 cups meat sauce, the remaining ziti and remaining cheese.
Add remaining meat sauce, completely covering all the ziti and
cheese. Place lid on slow cooker.

Cook on LOW for 6 to 7 hours or HIGH for 4 to 5 hours or until
noodles are tender.

Carefully remove lid to allow steam to escape. Sprinkle with
the remaining 1 cup mozzarella; let stand 10 minutes until melted.

That sounds really good...I am going to try it when we go camping over spring break. Couple of questions...

1- What size crock pot do you use ??
2- How many servings does this recipe make ??
3- You don't cook the noodles first, right ??

1. Hmmm, mine is pretty big, possibly even an 8 quart, but it may just be 6.
2. Now this is a relevant question. I suppose the official answer would be around 8, maybe 10, if you are talking about 1 cup servings. My husband and son eat at least 3 cup servings, and my husband eats at least 2 plates. (on an annoying side note, he never gains a pound!!! Tall and thin, soooo annoying.) We are a family of 5 and there have been times we have leftovers depending how hungry my husband is.
3. I do not cook the noodles first. You can, but I find they turn out too mushy,especially if for some reason it has to sit an extra hour or something. I've seen recipes only call for 1 jar of sauce, but I find that 2 jars helps cook the noodles and keeps them from getting dry. Also, a tip.....spray the crockpot first! I serve it with salad and garlic bread. Enjoy!

You know I realize, when I make this, I usually use a box and a half of ziti and some extra cheese. I would say the recipe as posted would make about 6 servings. Sorry I can't be more help on the serving issue, I'm not much of a measuring cooker, and I adjust recipes a lot. LOL.

That does help, thanks. I also tend to use a little more sauce when making noodles in the crock pot so they don't dry out. We have a 5 quart crockpot in our motorhome and there are 5 in my family as well. The amount of food is similar to what we would use at home, so I am sure it will be enough for my family of 5.
