Oh, man. Properly made steel-cut (aka Scottish or Irish) oatmeal will change your opinion about oatmeal. Scottish oatmeal, without the benefit of added fat, comes out creamy and delicious; the trick is the long cooking time. I had mine with milk added and, honestly, it was totally unnecessary. You can also make this in a crockpot; just fix it up before you go to bed and you will wake up to breakfast!
This recipe came from a friends sister. Great for cook-outs, pot lucks....
Very forgiving recipe can easily adjust amounts to suit your tastes. I usually assemble ahead of time and refrigerate overnight before putting in the crock-pot. I have also made ahead of time and put in the freezer for DH to take as part of a "hunting" camp meal.
I got this recipe from the amazing blog A Year of Crock Potting. Apparently she got the recipe from Rachael Ray when she was on that show. I must admit, it's a good recipe :)
This is how I made it, a little different than hers, but still very good. I used bone in, skin on thighs but will remove the skin next time. The bones were easy to pick out and add some nutrition to the long cooked sauce. This amount of sauce could use maybe one more thigh, or more meat and less vegetables. Use the curry paste you like best; I used yellow. Yellow is the mildest Thai curry so use caution if you aren't used to the heat.
In the end it's not take out quality, but it is hot and ready when you get home and a whole lot cheaper than the same amount of take out. Certainly worth a try and good even for crock pot newbies!
I saw this on Just A Pinch Recipe Club, putting here for safe-keeping. It sounds like it would be good for Christmas time or for fund-raising events.
Here is a note that was in the directions:
If your crockpot appliance is below 275 watts, you should not have any problem with the candy burning if you follow the ingredients and the directions, however, all crockpots are different, so please pay attention to your cooking process. Look on the bottom of your appliance to see the wattage. The other note was too long to include here, so it's at the bottom of the recipe.
This is a sausage omlet for many made all at once! GREAT for summertime vacation! Just mix, set and go to bed! I use the sundried tomatoes since it will rehydrate during cooking. you can use fresh but recommend waiting until serving to top each serving with fresh room temperature diced tomatoes.
You can use other meats if you wish, use some leftover ham, or crispy fried bacon. cooked turkey sausage. Add fresh sliced mushrooms or diced bell peppers! or how about a minced jalapeno! what ever you like in your omlet the choices are yours- just make sure any meats are already cooked.
From many trial and errors and several retakes and revisions, here is the final recipe for my Slow Cook Lentil-Sweet Potato Soup. It is hardy, thick, and savory, with a reddish, slightly sweet broth.
Note: this recipe is adapted from the following recipe at About.com:
Use only low sodium soy sauce and beef broth for this, my family likes spicy so I add in some crushed chili flakes also, I have left the onion powder or onion flakes as optional if you are an onion-lover then you might want to include it --- any leftover beef gravy may be frozen to use later for gravies or soup bases
I got a similar recipe of this a long time ago, got bored with it back then, and changed some ingredients. My husband and daughter get so excited when we're gonna have this for dinner. I don't measure some things, so if you need me to explain further, let me know. The liquid is so good that I keep sipping it! HA!
I got this recipe from the Weight Watchers site. I have not tried it yet, but it is one of my favorite soups so I had to save it to try soon. It is 5 points per serving. The serving size is 3/4 cup plus 3 T corn chips for 5 points so if you want more, double the recipe AND the points.
OK, this is not a chicken you just dump into a crock pot with seasoning and expect to have a gourmet meal after 8 hours - this crock pot chicken is a labor of love and requires just a little bit of time. Believe me, you will be glad you took it.
