WELCOME

Welcome to this slow cooker/crockpot blog. I believe slow cookers are the best thing to happen to modern day cooks. I used mine often when I worked outside the home and continue to do so even in retirement. It is so nice to put food on and forget about it. Slow cookers also allow us to cook many things we would normally have to use the oven for; what a relief in hot Texas weather! Some of these recipes are mine, many are ones I have collected over the years.

STUFFING MADE WITH APPLESAUCE

1 stick (1/2 cup) butter
1 cup chopped walnuts or pecans
2 yellow onions, chopped
1 pkg (14-oz) cubed herb stuffing mix
1 1/2 cups no-sugar-added applesauce
1 cup water
Nonstick cooking spray

Melt 2 tablespoons of the butter in a large skillet over medium heat; add the nuts and cook, stirring often, for 5 minutes to toast. Remove nuts to a small dish and set aside.

Add the remaining butter to the skillet, add onion and saute until tender, 3 to 4 minutes.

Spray the inside of a 4 to 6-quart slow cooker with the cooking spray.

Spread the stuffing mix over bottom of cooker; add the butter/onion mixture and stir to combine.

Add the applesauce and water to the cooker and stir gently to combine.

Place lid on cooker and cook on low 4 to 5 hours.

Before serving, sprinkle the toasted nuts over all.

Note: Add some cooked shredded turkey or chicken, if desired.
