Why slave in a hot kitchen? There is absolutely nothing wrong with breaking out the slow cooker when guests come to visit. These are my favourite guest-worthy slow cooker recipes and my top tips for using your slow cooker.
Everybody loves tacos, and this Three Ingredient Slow Cooker Chicken Tacos recipe can even be made with frozen chicken breasts. Make them guest worthy by serving with an array of toppings like grated cheese, chopped up veggies, lettuce and of course guacamole and sour cream. Toss a salad (or pick one up from the store) and voila dinner is served.
In case you were wondering, it is possible to make an entire roast beef dinner in the slow cooker. So for the nights you want to impress but don't want to be chained to the kitchen, this is the recipe for you! Another beef option, if you're not feeling like the entire roast beef dinner is this restaurant-favourite Beef Dip recipe.
Speaking of restaurant favourites, this Slow Cooker French Onion Soup takes just a few minutes to prep but is completely worth it at dinner time!
If you're looking for something else you can put on a bun, I make this Slow Cooker Pulled Pork all the time for guests and friends in need of a little extra help with meals. Serve with coleslaw (either for a crunchy topping or on the side) or my Three Ingredient Asian Crunch Salad and mashed potatoes.
For the evenings when everyone is tired of heavy meat dishes, this Slow Cooker Vodka Cream Sauce is perfect over your favourite pasta.
When you've hit our limit of heavy meals but still want some comfort food, my favourite recipe to make guests is this Slow Cooker Chicken Noodle Soup. It is so very easy and especially yummy when served with my Beer Rosemary Cheddar Bread.
Finally, if you decide to order pizza (which is totally okay too!) but want to serve something homemade for dessert, give this slow cooker Apple Crisp recipe a try or this slow cooker Strawberry Cobbler recipe which can be made with your favourite frozen berries.
