Slow-Cooker Meals – Menu Plan October 28

Posted By Heather On October 28, 2013 @ 12:26 am In Menu Plan | 12 Comments


slowcook28 [3]We’re talking about Slow-Cooker meals this week for the Gluten-Free Menu Swap.

I seem to use my slow-cooker more in the fall and winter. I love the thought of coming home to a meal all cooked and ready to warm me up on a chilly evening. And, it’s perfect for a night of trick-or-treating, don’t you think?

I do use my slow-cooker year round to make shredded Mexican Chicken [4] and Pulled Pork [5]. But, I’m more likely to make Chilis and Stews in my slow-cooker during the colder months of the year. I don’t use my slow-cooker as often as I could…or maybe should. I don’t use it for breakfast or desserts, but I’m willing to give it a try. So, maybe I’ll make Angela’s French Toast Casserole [6] this week and Chocolate Flan from The 163 Best Paleo Slow Cooker Recipes [7]. Oh, and I’m going to try Gina’s recipe for cooking Gluten-Free Garlic Bread [8] in the slow-cooker, using Pillsbury’s® new gluten-free pizza dough [9].

Need help with your slow-cooking? If you are not familiar with the blog Crockpot 365: A Year of Slow Cooking [10], you should really check it out. All the recipes are gluten-free and for the slow-cooker. Stephanie  has a great article with cooking tips [11] for getting good results from your slow-cooker, too.

Laura at OrgJunkie [12] is also sharing Slow-Cooker recipes this week: Slow-Cooker Quinoa Chicken Chili [13] at Queen Bee Coupons, Slow-Cooker Corn Chowder [14] from Eat at Home, and Stephanie’s Maple Barbecue Beef [15].

The Gluten-Free Menu Swap roundup will be included below. Don’t forget to check it for more gluten-free menus and ideas for slow-cooker meals.

Gluten Free Menu Swap Roundup

Gluten Free Detroit Metro: Gluten-Free Menu
Amanda says slow-cooker meals make her feel like a supermom — having dinner ready when everyone walks in the door from school and work. She is getting plenty of inspiration from Stephanie O’dea’s recipes this week: Chili and slow-cooker Corn Bread [20], Cream Cheese Chicken [21], and Slow-Cooker Mac ‘n Cheese [22]. She also plans to make French Dip Sandwiches, Potato Leek Soup, and Angela’s Pork Roast with Apples and Pears [23].

The Girl Who Couldn’t Eat Anything: eating without Gluten, Dairy, Peanuts, Oats, or Meat [24]
Elisabeth says she always uses her slow-cooker to make two things: Chili and Apple Butter. So, in addition to the Chili this week, she’s also planning Stir-Fry with Shrimp, Tacos with Mushrooms, Baked Potatoes, Fish, and Pizza.

The Peaceful Mom: Simple Gluten-Free Menu
Kimberlee is using her slow-cooker this week for Southwest Chicken Chili [25] and a more traditional Beef and Bean Chili [26]. She’s also making Quesadillas, Pizza with a Chebe Crust, Sloppy Joe’s, and Poor Man’s Meal.

Dietz Eats: Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free Menu [27]
No slow-cooker meals in Fawn’s menu this week. Instead she’ll be enjoying veggies from a local co-op. Her menu this week includes Meatloaf, Oriental Chicken Salad, Pork with Caramelized Onions, Taco Salad, and Chicken and Ham Roll-ups.

Angela’s Kitchen: Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free Menu
Angela definitely puts the slow-cookers to use at her house. Just check out all the recipes she has on her Slow-Cooker Recipes Page [28]. This week, she’ll be making for her family Slow-Cooker Barbecue Chicken [29], Slow-Cooker French Toast Casserole [6],  Asian Pork Roast for the Slow-Cooker [30], Slow-Cooker Pulled Italian Chicken and Kale [31], and BBQ Turkey Sloppy Joe’s.
