Betty’s Best Spring Slow-Cooker Recipes
Get into the spring of things with fresh weeknight dinners, simple side dishes and entertaining ideas—made easy with a slow cooker.
Slow-Cooker Bacon-Ranch Chicken and Pasta
Few dishes have the crowd-pleasing power of pasta, and with just 10 minutes of prep time, this bacon-and-ranch version couldn’t be easier.
Slow-Cooker New Potatoes and Spring Vegetables
If spring had an official taste, we’re pretty sure this would be it. The perfect mix of new potatoes, baby carrots and asparagus, combined with lemon, dill and Dijon mustard make this seemingly simple recipe taste sublime. We especially love it with Balsamic-Glazed Grilled Chicken Breasts or Pan-Seared Sirloin Steak.
Slow-Cooker Southern-Style Ham
Spring is a time of many celebrations—Easter, Mother’s Day, graduation—so it’s a good idea to have a few simple crowd-ready recipes like this five-star ham at the ready.
Slow-Cooker Pineapple Upside Down Cake
Slow cooking this classic cake frees up your oven for other dishes, making it the perfect finale to a springtime dinner party with friends. For an extra-special touch, top each piece with a dollop of homemade whipped cream.
