I love my crock pot. There, I’ve said it. It might seem strange but next to the microwave this is my favorite kitchen appliance. It means I can run around all day and still do a decent job of feeding the family. Bellow is one of my favorite recipes from Taste of Home’s Crock Pot recipe section. My tip? Don’t skimp on the bacon. I normally use about 6-8 pieces to pump up the flavor.
