    Jane,
    I had never thought of doing lasagna in the crock pot! I will give that a try.

    I've never done lasagne in the crockpot either. Do you cook the noodles first, Jane? Do you start with the noodles (do they stick to the pot?) I'm thinking I'm going to have to try that one!

    Start layering with the sauce. You don't have to cook the noodles first, I never do, even when I bake it in the regular oven.

    3/4 C. bottled Russian dressing

    12 skinless, boneless, chicken breast halves trimmed of fat
    In a medium bowl, mix together the apricot preserves, dressing and dry soup mix until well blended. Arrange 3 of the chicken breast halves in the bottom of a 3 1/2 qt slow cooker, Spoon a fourth of the apricot mixture on top. Add 3 more layres of chicken with the apricot mixture in between and on top. Cover and cook on the hight heat setting 1 hour Reduce the heat to low and continue cooking covered 2 1/2 hours to 3 hour or until the chicken is tender and white through out do not over cook or the chicken will toughen Serve the sauce over the chicken.

    I was looking at crockpots today and found a good sized one for $20. I think that when I get my next check on the 11th I'm going to go buy one finally. All of these recipes have inspired me! ;)

    Wow, these recipes sound wonderful. Especially since I had pretzels for dinner tonight. But, I survived the frozen chicken meal the other night - but it was awful. Does the rice always get really mushy in the crockpot? I put in rice, boneless frozen chicken breasts, can of mushrooms, can of cream of chicken soup. Yucky. I'll try some of the other ideas, though......

    I always have a hard time with rice in crockpots. It always turns out mushy. Maybe there is a secret?

    Chicken Cordon Bleu

    4-6 chicken breasts (pounded out thin) •
    4-6 pieces of ham •
    4-6 slices of Swiss or mozzarella cheese •
    1 can cream of mushroom soup (can use any cream soup) •
    1/4 cup milk

    Put ham and cheese on chicken. Roll up and secure with a toothpick. Place chicken in the crockpot so it looks like a triangle /_\ Layer the rest on top. Mix soup with the milk; pour over top of chicken. Cover and cook on low for 4 hours or until chicken is no longer pink. Serve over noodles with the sauce it makes. Teresa's Note: Its the best recipe I've tried so far, very flavorful.
    5-6 pts. , depending on the size of the chicken breast. I used a 3 oz chicken breast (3 pts.) 96% fat free ham (.5 pts), 2% moz cheese (1 pt.). Then when you add the cream of mushroom soup (98% ff) and 1/4 c. milk (fat free) and divide by the 6 servings I had in the crockpot, I only came up with about 1 pt. for that (at most). Total = 5.5 pts. Does that sound about right. Hope

    Corn, Ham and Potato Scallop
    6 Points Serving Size : 6

    6 cups peeled baking potatoes -- cut in 1" cubes
    1 1/2 cups cubed cooked ham
    1 15.25oz. can Green Giant Whole Kernel Sweet Corn -- drained
    1/4 cup chopped green bell pepper
    2 teaspoons instant minced onion
    1 10 3/4oz.can condensed Cheddar Cheese Soup
    1/2 cup milk
    2 tablespoons all-purpose flour

    In 3 1/2 to 4-quart Crock-Pot slow cooker, combine potatoes, ham, corn, bell pepper and onion; mix well. 2. In small bowl, combine soup, milk and flour; beat with wire whisk until smooth. Pour soup mixture over potato mixture; stir gently to mix. 3. Cover; cook on low setting for 7-9 hours or until potatoes are tender. Ingred. Info: Potatoes cook more quickly when cut into small pieces; cubed potatoes will cook faster than quartered potatoes. The 1-inch chunks of potato in our recipe work well as they do not get too soft during the long cooking time. Ingred Sub: Leftover cooked roast beef or turkey can be used in place of the ham.
    6(1 1/2-cup)servings. Per serving: Cal 320; Total fat 7g; (sat 4g); Choles 30mg; Sod 1010mg; Total Carbs 49g; Fiber 5g; Sugars 6g; Pro 14g. POINTS: 6 MC Formatted 5/31/98 and submitted to the WW forum. Submitted to new forum 7-11-00. Try it with 1 can condensed low fat cream of mushroom soup in place of Cheese soup for a completely different taste.(per Sherry C)


    Crockpot Enchilada Layered Casserole

    1 medium onion, chopped
    1 green pepper, chopped
    1 lb. 93% lean ground beef
    1 15oz can diced tomatoes with Mexican seasoning
    1 teaspoon chili powder
    1/2 teaspoon cumin
    1 15 oz. can ranch beans (or chili beans or dark red kidney beans) undrained
    1/2 to 1 small can tomato sauce
    fat-free flour tortillas
    reduced fat Mexican Cheese

    Cook onion and green pepper in non-stick skillet over medium heat until translucent, stirring constantly. Add ground beef and stir until cooked. Add 1 15oz can diced tomatoes with mexican seasoning, UNDRAINED 1 teaspoon chili powder 1/2 teaspoon cumin 1 15 oz. can ranch beans (or chili beans or dark red kidney beans), undrained 1/2 to 1 small can tomato sauce Cook on low for 10 minutes, until piping hot. Sauce should be like a thin spaghetti sauce consistency. Spray with Pam the inside of a 3.5 quart crockpot. Layer the following in this order: 3/4 cup sauce mixture 1 fat-free flour tortilla 1/3 cup reduced fat Mexican Cheese, grated Make 6 layers, ending with cheese. Pour any sauce remaining over the top. Cook 6 hours on low. Total recipe has 41 points. It is supposed to serve 6, but I usually find it serves 10, which makes it 4.1 points a serving. This tastes like a Mexican Lasagna to me. I take it to all our church suppers, by request, and it is always all eaten--even the pot is scraped. Check on this recipe the first time you make it--a friends' Crockpot has a higher "low" setting, and it doesn't need six hours to be done in her pot--gets too dry. My crackpot’s "low" setting is 225-250 degrees. ViolaNan


    Crockpot Spaghetti Roast
    5 Points

    1 medium rump roast, trimmed
    1 1 LB, 10 oz jar spaghetti sauce (I use Ragu Light Tomato & Basil (no sugar added)
    6 cups cooked spaghetti (9 oz. dry)*
    Per Serving: 2 ounces of lean beef (3 Points), 1/2 cup spaghetti sauce (1 Point),*1/2 cup cooked spaghetti (1 Point)=5 Points; 284.8 Cal, 8.2g Fat, 5.2g Fiber=5 Points. NOTE: * I cook 6 cups spaghetti so that others may have more than 1/2 cup. If I have 1-cup spaghetti, it becomes 7 points per serving

    JWow, I didn't know you could cook spaghetti in there. Can it stay in all day? Okay, we need more recipes that don't have soup in them. Soups have way too much salt for me.

    Oven-Roasted Potatoes
    2lbs all-purpose potatoes, cut into large chunks
    1/3 cup olive oil or vegetable oil
    1 envelope Lipton Recipe Secrets Savory Herb with Garlic Soup Mix

    Preheat oven to 450-degrees. In large plastic bag or bowl, add all ingredients. Close bag and shake, or toss in bowl, until potatoes are evenly coated.
    In 13 x 9-inch baking or roasting pan, arrange potatoes, discard bag.
    Baked uncovered, stirring occasionally, 40 minutes, or until potatoes are tender and golden brown.
    Makes about 4 servings.
    ______
    I used red-skinned potatoes, about 3lbs, peeled. Otherwise, I followed the same recipe. If you prefer, you can leave the skins on too.
    I coated the potatoes with the oil and sprinkled on the soup mix, then mixed completely.
    Cooked on low for about 6 hours.
    I used my 4 1/2-qt Crock Pot - one of the older ones. I know the newer ones cook hotter, so cooking time may depend on the model, and also on the size of the potato pieces.

    Diznee, have you tried Aimee's Adventures? She has a weight watcher's cookbook and has most of the recipes on her website. Some of the recipes you've posted sound like hers. She has some GREAT stuff on there.

    I got a recipe from a friend today, I can't wait to try it!

    Mexican Meatloaf!

    2 1/2 lb ground beef
    4 oz salsa
    1 pkg taco seasoning
    1 egg slightly beaten
    1 C bread crumbs
    12 oz shredded Mexican cheese (I'm going to put more...I'm a cheese hog!)
    2 t salt
    1/2 t pepper

    Combine all ingredients, except half of the taco seasoning.
    Mix well. Shape into loaf and place in slow cooker. Sprinkle with remaining taco seasoning.
    Cover. Cook on low 8-10 hours.

    I'm thinking a little salsa and cheese on the top would be great, and of course serve with hot tortillas.

    I made a couple things in the crockpot this weekend and both were over done and dry. So it goes...back to the drawing board. I thought most things cooked on low took about 8 hours, but I guess not with pork chops and chicken breasts? Maybe my crockpot cooks hotter than some. NOt sure what I am making next. Christy , one time I made a meatloaf in the crockpot and it was really awful! Let me know how yours turns out. I'm a crock pot flunky!

    Crock Pot Potatoes

    Has anyone ever tried to put sliced potatoes in the Crock Pot the night before? I did that one time, and in the morning they were BLACK! I couldn't even imagine trying to eat it, so I threw the whole thing out.:( Anyone have a way to keep this from happening?

    Spaghetti sauce.
    I put in browned ground beef 1-2 pounds, large 15-16 ounce can of tomato sauce, Large 15-16 ounce can chopped tomatoes and a large can of tomato paste. Add garlic powder, italian seasonings, chives, whatever seasonings you like, stir, cover, set to low. It makes enough for my family of 7 AND I am able to freeze the leftover sauce for another meal.

    keep your potatoes in water until you are ready to use them.
