My Favorite Crockpot Recipe

I have been asked twice now for a favorite crockpot recipe so I feel like I should blog about it too. I love the crockpot. Is it not the best?!? So easy to put stuff in there, forget about it, take in the pleasant smells (if it isn’t pleasant, you are cooking the WRONG thing), and wham! it’s done by dinner time.

Today is the Fit Dish link up with The Fit Switch and Jill Conyers. Perfect timing for a recipe share. This is my all-time favorite recipe and really, it is not just a Fall/Winter one. I have it all year round!

So, enjoy my Harvest Vegetable Chowder. And gotta give credit where credit is due… my mom has been making this for years and years. It was my favorite dish when away at college. She would have it ready for me when I drove on in and it was the perfect post-travel dish. Yum times three!

Harvest Vegetable Chowder


The recipe above is the way to make it without a crockpot, but trust me… you can do this in the crockpot too! If making this in the crockpot, the only change is to heat on low for 8 hours. The last hour is when you put in the frozen veggies, milk, and dill.

Enjoy! What is your FAVORITE crockpot recipe?

  • YUM! This sounds really delicious! I just told my hubby I’m probably gonna make it this weekend! 🙂

  • Kate Scott

    Mmm! This sounds great! I love that you can do it in the crockpot too!

  • Yay for crockpot recipes! 😀 I love chowder! <3

    I don't think I can choose a single favorite crockpot recipe! :[ I'd probably go with some kind of chili though (as you may have noticed from my post, har har). I made a pumpkin chili and a chocolate chili once that I really liked! 😀

    I really need to employ my crockpot more, he’s feeling unneeded. So silly! This looks yummy, and a great option for getting my kids to eat more veg. YAY. Thanks so much, Bri!

  • The crockpot is my best friend! This recipe looks so tasty and full of veggies! Crockpot chili is one of my favorite recipes and chicken tortilla soup, too. YUM! Everything tastes better after marinating all day 🙂 Thanks for sharing!

    Love love all the veggies! I’m thinking even my non-veggie eating kids will like this. Thanks Bri.
