Five Easy Crockpot Recipes

I am a huge fan of crockpots. In fact, I just bought a second crockpot a few weeks ago. My old one works just fine, but it’s a bit small and I wanted one that would fit an entire roast or turkey breast without having to cut the meat first.

One of the advantages of crockpots is that cooking is very easy. It usually consists of mixing some ingredients together, throwing it all in and turning it on.

I’d like to share some of my family’s favorite easy crockpot recipes with you:

We love turkey year-round. I buy turkey breasts when they are on sale. These first few recipes are for turkey breasts:

1 turkey breast

2 cans cream of something soup

2 soup cans of water

We have used cream of mushroom mixed with cream of chicken soup. We have also used cream of asparagus mixed with cream of chicken soup. Both recipes come out wonderfully. Refer to your owner’s manual to see how much liquid you need in the crockpot for perfect cooking. Depending on size, you may only need one can of water. Cook on low eight hours.

1 turkey breast

1 package onion soup mix

2 cups Sprite or 7-Up

I prefer the flavor of the soda to water. You can however use water mixed with the onion soup mix. If you want to add in some cut celery and/or carrots, that will add to the overall flavor of the sauce. Cover and cook on low eight hours.

1 turkey breast

1 can jellied cranberry sauce

1-2 cans chicken broth

I like to cut the cranberry sauce into small pieces and rub it all over the turkey. Then I mix the remaining cranberry sauce in with the clear chicken broth. Put the turkey into the crockpot then pour the sauce in. Cover and cook on low for eight hours.

If you prefer beef over turkey, here are a couple of very easy beef recipes:

2 pounds of meat – you can use either a roast or stew meat. Both will be tender after the hours of cooking.

1 can cream of mushroom soup

1 envelope onion soup mix


Mix together the soup, water and onion soup mix. Place meat in crockpot. Pour the sauce in and cook on low for seven to eight hours.

The final recipe I’d like to share with you is also a beef recipe:

1 roast

1 can beef broth

1 package Italian salad dressing mix


Mix together the sauce. Place the roast in the crockpot and pour sauce over the meat. Cook on low about eight hours.

These are all easy yet flavorful recipes you can make in your crockpot.
