    Chicken and bacon casserole with cripsy rosemary dumplings

    4-6 smoked streaky bacon rashers
    4-6 chicken breasts
    1 sweet potato, peeled and cut into cubes
    2 carrots, roughley chopped
    1 large onion, chopped
    2 tsp Bovril or Marmite
    1 tsp tomato puree
    ½ pint dry white wine
    Chicken stock cube

    For the dumplings
    225g self raising flour
    100g shredded suet
    2 tbsp chopped fresh rosemary
    1 egg, beaten

    Wrap a bacon rasher around a chicken breast and secure with a cocktail stick. Season well. Put sweet potatoe, onion and carrots in slow cooker, place chicken and bacon on top. Crumble stock cube over, season and pour in white wine, add tomato puree and bovril, mix well. Leave to cook. About half way through add some cornflour mixed with cold water, you seem to need more than normal in the slow cooker.

    You are welcome, and its nice to help someone else for a change (I have had so much advice and ideas from the forum in the last couple of months).

    I am looking forward to making stuff OTHER THAN STEWS in my slow cooker, like lasagne, spagbol, casseroles, etc . . . stuff you can prep in the morning and be ready for tea . . . stress free cooking . . . even my boys are asking me what I am cooking tomorrow . . . personally I think they are waiting for me to try the syryp sponge!!!

    And dont forget, you can make delicious rice pudding in your slow cooker . . . much better than the best well know brand!!!!

    Also, you can make pies as well . . . make the filling in the slow cooker, then just before serving, take the crock pot out of the housing and put puff pastry on the top and pop in the oven!!!

    Hope you are convinced to get one, you wont regret it!

    I will shut up now . . . as you can tell, I love my slow cooker

    Lovies

    Slow cooker lamb and tomato stew:
    1.2 kg stewing lamb (I have also used less before..but good to make more and freeze sometimes)
    2 tbsp plain flour seasoned with pepper
    4tbsp oil
    2 large cloves of garlic
    1 sprig fresh rosmary (have also left this out before as it was raining so much I couldnt be bothered to go into the garden and get it..LOL)
    150ml white wine and 150ml lamb or beef stock OR 300 ml stock
    1/2 tsp salt
    400g can tomatoes
    salt and pepper to season

    trim lamb and cut into cubes
    toss in flour
    heat oil in a pan and fry the lamb
    then lift into slow cooker pot
    add the garlic to remaining oil in frying pan, then add rosemary wine and stock and tomatoes..bring almost to the boil and scrape off all the bits of meat etc from the pan
    pour over the lamb
    season with salt and pepper

    leave in slow cooker (mine doesnt have a heat setting like low or high..so I just leave it for the max amount of hours which with mine is 9)
    the recipe says: high for an hour then 6-8 hours on medium

    Rice Pudding

    25g butter
    100g sugar
    100g desert rice
    1ltr milk

    Grease the pot with the butter (use it all up)
    Add the other ingredients to the pot
    Stir gently together
    Turn the slow cooker to high
    Stir occassionally during cooking
    Cooking time is approx 2.5hrs to 3.5hrs

    when it is to liquidy I have sometimes just opened to lid towards the end to let some steam evaporate...or change my cooking mode to porridge cooking which does the job in no time...as it uses a much higher heat...(as my slow cooker mode doesnt have a heat setting)

    Love my slow cooker. Currently have vegetable pasta sauce in mine.

    Have some fab receipies in a slow cook book my mom brought me so will put some of those on. Going to try some of the ones already on here.

    But do agree strews, chillis and such like seem to be the norm. This month declicious mag has some slow cooker recipies in it.

    Roast chicken!

    1 chicken
    1 carrot per person
    2 x celery sticks
    1 x Onion
    1 x garlic bulb
    Pack streaky bacon rashers.

    Peel carrots and chop into large pieces (either half or in thirds.)

    Peel loose skin from onion, top and tail then cut in half.

    Remove loose skin from garlic head and cut in half.

    Clean celery sticks and cut into large chunks.

    Put carrots, celery, onion and garlic in bottom of slow cooker. Wash chicken and sit on top of veg in slow cooker.

    Cook on high for 2 hours and then switch to low and leave all day. Remove chicken from pot - brown in oven if you want. Fish out carrots and celery with a slotted spoon. Strain liquid into a saucepan and make gravy with it.

    Yum yum yum!! You can crumble a stock cube and rub it all over the chicken which makes it a bit browner but I usually just take the skin off and then boil it up with the bones to make stock

    I buy an extra large chicken and serve it with mash the first day. I make loads more mash and veggies than I need and then the next day I make what I now call Chicken Coop Pie, which is kind of a chicken version of cottage pie.

    Then if I still have leftovers the day after that I do either chicken fried rice or chicken bake, which is kind of like a pasta bake except I use rice instead.

    Just found this one on *****

    Beef stew
    "Take 500g of braising steak, cube it and roll in flour, salt and pepper. Fry it off with 1 sliced onion. Add 1 oxo cube and 150ml water. Then chuck into the slow cooker with spuds, carrots, garlic and leeks (or a bag of winter vegetable mix). Cook on slow for 8-10 hours."
