44 Slow Cooker Recipes with 4 Ingredients or Less

No matter what time of year it is, my slow cooker is always my best friend.  I only started using it a couple of years ago and instantly fell in love. (I know, what was I thinking?) Since then, it's become a huge time saver and what's more, the food is delish! With about 5 million other things to squeeze into a day, why not making cooking a little easier? I've scoured the web and leaned on some of my blogging buddies to come up with this fabulous big list of 44 slow cooker recipes with 4 ingredients or less! Please do note, that I do not take credit for creating the recipes, unless they are on my blog. I am simply linking to recipes for your convenience and hopefully enjoyment 😉

Looks beautiful and delicious! I do some prep ahead meals but not that many. I think this is very worthwhile and nice to know you always have a meal on hand!

Oh boy! Tried out the monkey bread and it is amazing! So easy to do and clean up after. I picked up the biscuits as a last minute idea and was able to make it while I was making other dishes and they were ready when I was done. What a perfect treat for the big kid in the house for the first football game of the season (hall of fame game)! Thanks for sharing!
