Meal Idea Monday: Introducing Crock Pot Girls! (and Slow Cooker Pizza Casserole)

5 Sep

Good morning, everyone! It’s a beautiful day, and I’m super excited to share with you a wonderful resource for slow cooker recipes. It’s called Crock Pot Girls, and you have got to check them out! They have a grea facebook page, and just started a great website as well. There are SO many wonderful crock pot recipes, and more are always being added- literally every few minutes by fans from all over! Crock Pot Girls is an awesome resource for our Food Tidings community because the crock pot is such an AWESOME tool to use when creating meals for our loved ones. It’s simple, easy, and the results are delcious!

Here’s a recipe that I found on their facebook page for Slow Cooker Pizza Casserole. This is very kid friendly, and if you ask me, adult friendly too! I made this for my family this past week, and it turned out GREAT! All my kids ate it, which is saying a lot for my picky little ones. It even made enough for me to freeze an 8×8 pan (a disposable pan of course!) to bring to a friend who just had a baby. Thanks for the recipe, Crock Pot Girls. And here’s to many, many more! 🙂

Thanks Crock Pot Girls for a delcious recipe… see how pretty it turned out?!
