Fall.  The time of year where it starts to get chilly and hearty meals is where it’s at!

This time last year, Hamilton Beach reached out to me to share a favorite slow cooker recipe of mine and I shared an amazing Apple Crisp recipe.  So this year when they reached out to me about trying their Programmable Stay of Go 6 Quart Slow Cooker, I decided to switch it up and share a delicious dinner idea: Mississippi Pot Roast!

Straight up – slow cookers are my thing.  Who doesn’t love an appliance that you put food into, leave alone for 8 hours, and magically dinner is ready for you when you check back?!  Well this exact slow cooker has three temperature settings and a timer…a timer!  I’ve never owned one that keeps track of how long it’s been cooking and I know that sounds simple enough to take care of yourself BUT when you are trying to prepare a meal and your baby is crying…sometimes it’s hard to keep track of the starting time.  So this takes care of that.  😉  Also, this cooker’s lid is hinged and locks so it’s easy to transport if you need to take meals to family get togethers/holiday functions.  You can see all of the other features here.

I’m always on the hunt for easy slow cooker recipes…and I mean easy…as in you throw items in and that’s all you do, no extra prepping or adding things in after it’s done!  And of course, recipes that don’t have a ton of ingredients are a major plus too!  If that’s something you and your family appreciate too, I highly recommend giving the Mississippi Pot Roast a try!

    Your pot roast looks amazing…….and easy! Thanks so much for the recipe. I’ll have to give it a try. I absolutely love crockpot cooking! So easy and so good. I don’t have a programmable crockpot, but it’s on my “want” list.

    We have been looking for a new slow cooker so this popped up at the right time. We have an older style and just want to upgrade and put ours away ‘just in case’. This recipe sounds pretty darn good too, may have to give it a shot this month. Thanks for the awesome giveaway and good review. 🙂

    One of my families favorite neal in a slow cooker is beef stew. Now that the days are getting colder everyone wants this for dinner.

    Creamy Italian Chicken is one of my favorite crock pot meals – it’s not the healthiest, but it is easy. Chicken, good seasons, cream of chicken soup, and cream cheese. It’s so tasty, especially over white rice!

  5. Leslie Stanziani says:

    My kids would say crock pot Mac and cheese is the best.My personal favorite thing to make is pork chops with French onion soup,mushrooms, fresh herbs,and onions. It is a hit in my home.

  6. Jenney says:

    I love having a slow cooker for nights when I’m running the kids around to their activities right up until dinner time. We arrive home to a warm meal all ready for us that I “cooked” at noon!

  7. Christin chambers says:

    This looks amazing!!!! My favorite crock pot recipe is pork with cornbread stuffing and cranberry. It’s a pack of cornbread stuffing mix, some pork chops, a cubed up apple, some onion, and season-all. It’s the perfect cold day meal. Our slow cooker dates back to the 80’s or so.

  8. Wendy McBride says:

    I like to put Pre-seasoned Fajita Chicken Thighs in the crockpot and squirt Sriracha Sauce over the top of them and cook on high about 6 hrs. Tastes great, and easy to make.

  9. Lisa says:

    I love to make a classic beef roast with carrots and potatoes; it’s always a hit! I’m constantly on the lookout for new recipes to try – I’ll have to give this one a shot!

    I especailly love making homemade clam chowder and homemade chili in a slow cooker. Not only does it taste awesome but my house smells wonderful after cooking with it for hours. Slow cookers are great to use for meals for any size of a family. I will have to try your Mississippi Pot Roast, it looks delicious!

  17. Jodi T says:

    Ooh, I will have to try this one! My husband loves pepperoncini peppers! I make roast the most often in my slow cooker (that is old and needs an upgrade…wink wink) because it is so versatile for many different meals.

  18. Dana L. says:

    I love to make chicken, onion, and peppers (for chicken tacos) in the slow cooker! I’ve also been wanting to try some breakfast dishes, so we can wake up and have food ready to start the day!

  19. Jenny C says:

    I am such a sucker for crock pot meals! Anything from pork tenderloin and veggies to soups and pasta’s!! I am a stay at home mom to 8 kids and my amazing husband works long hours, so using my crock pot is a must; most days just to keep my sanity and be able to cook supper and spend my time with my kiddos!!

  20. Jen5253 Range says:

    I love making shredded chicken taco meat in the crock pot! I toss in frozen chicken breasts and add homemade taco seasoning, black beans and pinto beans, chopped black olives, chopped onion and minced garlic. It is so yummy on tacos and nachos!
