15 Slow Cooker Dinner Recipes
This post may contain affiliate links. Please read my disclosure policy.
It’s that time of year again. The time when we sadly bid all those lovely summer tomatoes adieu, and turn on the slow cooker. As summer fades into fall and the nights grow cooler, there isn’t much more comforting than coming home after a long day’s work to a house permeated with the smell of dinner simmering away.
These one-pot dishes are perfect week night go-to’s because they practically make themselves. I like to call recipes like these “hibernation food.” They’re warm, filling, and satisfying, and the best part is you can do just about all your prep in the morning or the night before, so you barely have anything to mess with later.
I’ve scavenged high and low for 15 of the best slow cooker suppers in the food blogosphere, and wrangled recipes like buffalo chicken pasta, turkey chili baked potatoes, and butternut squash soup with maple roasted chickpeas. Hope you guys enjoy, and happy slow-cooking!

Beautiful photos! I have bookmarked your site.

Great round up. I was really happy to see so many slowcooker recipes that aren’t completely carb based.
I’ve been meaning to get out my crockpot so I can “set it and forget it.” thanks for the inspiration.
I just want to say that I love this site!
Thank you Kim, we’re glad to hear you’re a fan! :)
This looks tasty but might I suggest that you swap cage-free organic for pastured organic. From what I know, it seems like a kinder option!
