Crockpot Chicken Bacon Ranch Sandwiches

My kids love anything served on bread. Seriously. I can slap pretty much anything on a nice Ciabatta roll and they’ll eat it happily. So I combined 3 of their favorite ingredients- chicken, ranch dressing, and bacon- into one delicious sandwich. And man, it was good y’all!

CBR1

Ingredients:
4-6 boneless chicken breasts (I used frozen)
16oz cream cheese, full fat
2 packets dry ranch dressing mix
12oz bacon, cooked and crumbled

Directions:
1. Place chicken breasts in bottom of crockpot.
2. Add cream cheese and ranch dressing mix.
3. Cook on High for 4 hours.
4. Shred chicken, return to crockpot, & stir to combine.
5. Add crumbled bacon and mix well.
6. Serve on warm Ciabatta rolls.

I can’t wait to make these again. I’ve added them to my monthly meal rotation after the kids asked for them for 4 straight days.

Crockpot 3 Meat Pizza Casserole

I’ll be honest, my family will pretty much eat anything that involves more than one kind of meat and pizza. I’m pretty sure that’s their love language. Bunch of carnivores! So when I was desperate for a dinner last month and didn’t have time to run to the grocery store I had to shop the pantry. It turned out fantastic and I’ll definitely make it again! Thanks goodness for stocking some extras in the pantry and second fridge!

CPC1

Ingredients:
1 lb Italian sausage, cooked
1 lb ground beef, cooked
1/2 cup onion, chopped
8 oz of ziti noodles, cooked
3 jars (14oz each) pizza sauce
3 tsp Italian seasoning
1 pkg (8oz) sliced pepperoni
2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese

Directions:
1. In large bowl mix all ingredients together except mozzarella cheese.
2. Pour mixture in bottom of crockpot.
3. Top with shredded cheese.
4. Cook on Low for 3 hours.

**I used a crockpot liner to cut down on the clean up. If you don’t use one of those then spray your crockpot with cooking spray.

I really can’t say enough about this dinner, it was fantastic. And we had enough leftovers for Matt to take for lunch the next day, which rarely happens around here!

Easy & Delicious Crockpot Meatball Stroganoff

One thing that Matt is always asking me to make is Meatball Stroganoff. He loves it but I don’t have time to make his favorite meatball dish from scratch these days. I tinkered around with my original recipe and converted it into a great crockpot dinner. Matt loved it! Even the kids ate it and they’re not that fond of noodles that aren’t covered in some kind of cheese sauce.

2 Tbsp A1 Steak Sauce 
1 can cream of mushroom soup
1 can beef broth
1 pkt Lipton’s onion soup mix

Directions:

1. Mix mushroom soup, broth, onion soup mix, and A1 sauce in crockpot.
2. Add frozen meatballs.
3. Cook on LOW for 7 hours or HIGH for 3.5 hours.

5. Cook pasta noodles and add to crockpot; mix well.

This soup was delicious! I added biscuits to the side and it was just like eating homemade from scratch chicken pot pie. The kids loved it and so did Matt. I’m definitely adding this one to my regular meal rotation!

31days

This is another delicious soup recipe that I’ve been dying to try out. I thought the kids wouldn’t be very enamored with this dinner but they surprised me by eating it without complaint. Matt really loved it and it made enough for us to have leftovers the next day for lunch.

1 green bell pepper, chopped
1/2 tsp garlic powder
2 bags of boil in bag white rice, uncooked

Directions:
1. Combine all ingredients except rice in crockpot.
2. Cover and cook on Low for 6 hours.
3. Pour uncooked rice into crockpot; stir.
4. Cover and continue cooking on High for 20-30 minutes.

I loved all the flavors in the soup. I think with a few tweaks to the recipe it would be a delicious gumbo so I may try that next time! For the rice, I had a box of Success Boil in Bag rice. I used 2 of the individual bags inside the box and that worked great.
