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.

1 1/2 cups water

1 cup dry lentils
1/2 cup chopped onion
1/2 tsp salt
1 can (16-oz) diced tomatoes
2 tbsp brown sugar
1 tbsp chili sauce
1/2 tsp dry mustard
2 crisp cooked slices of bacon, crumbled

Bring the water, lentils, onion, and salt to boil in a saucepan. Cover and simmer for 30 minutes. Transfer the lentils to the crockpot (or slowcooker) and stir in the tomatoes, sugar, chili sauce, and mustard. Place the lid on the cooker and cook on low setting for 8 to 10 hours on low.

Remove lid from cooker and move heat setting to high. Cook for another 30 minutes. Stir and then top with the crumbled bacon.

Yield: 6 servings
