I have talked about my love for my crockpot/slow cooker (whatever you wanna call it!) many times around here. It's the most wonderful solution for two working adults or busy families who just need a delicious dinner when they get home during the week! As I've been prepping our freezer with crockpot meals, I realized a lot of our favorites are more suited for the fall and winter. I love making chili, soups and stews in the crockpot. While those are still tasty year round, I needed some new inspiration. So, hello, Pinterest! Long-time no see. I rounded up a few awesome summer slow cooker recipes that I plan to make to make life simpler in the coming months and to also be more seasonally appropriate.
For a great breakfast/brunch idea- this frittata sounds SO tasty. I love anything with summer zucchini and the blend of herbs she uses in this recipe is already making my mouth water.
There is nothing like a summer Sloppy Joe, amiright?! This one made with quinoa really intrigued me- hopefully it will be as tasty and it sounds!
Corn?! In a crockpot?! With flavors like chili and lime? Sign. Me. Up. We don't have a grill currently (ours broke a couple summers ago and we have yet to pull the trigger on a new one) so if I can get a delicious summery corn in my slow cooker- you bet I'm going to try it!
Stuffed peppers are another go-to meal in our house, but typically of the heavier, cheesy variety- and I've always made them in the oven, too. This Greek spin on something I already love sounds awesome!
And of course I had to at least throw one dessert recipe into the mix ;) This cobbler sounds absolutely delicious and if I can have something sweet without slaving in the kitchen for hours doing tedious steps? I'm in!
Anyone have any favorite summer slow cooker recipes to add to the mix for me?! I'm officially hungry after writing this post ;) Bring on the summer yumminess!
