Crocktoberfest Round-Up – 15 awesome recipes to kick off fall cooking!

Growing Up Zee: 2016 Crocktoberfest Round Up

October is here! After the spring/summer of fresh salads, produce, and grilling, I love breaking out the crock-pot for some hearty dinners. Plus – there’s absolutely nothing better than setting the crock-pot in the morning and having a warm meal ready at the end of the day…

These are some of my favorite crock-pot recipes from around the web. My absolute favorite is the Mississippi Roast, you must try it!


3 Ingredient BBQ Meatballs  So easy and great for parties! This one is always a hit.
Queso Blanco  Just like the restaurant kind, melty and cheesy – perfect for Sunday football
Buffalo Chicken Dip My personal favorite when hosting. Ran out twice at my last party.


Chicken Burrito Bowl  Chicken + Rice + Beans + Cheese = win
Chicken, Potato, and Green Beans  Sometimes it’s hard to incorporate veggies into a crock-pot recipe but this one is perfect
Chicken Parm Pasta Easy and a winner for hosting dinner. Plenty of leftovers!


Chili Mac  Crock-pots were invented for chili – this recipe adds pasta which helps bulk it up! 
Mississippi Roast So easy! The best way to have a pot roast. It literally falls apart.
Barbacoa (Pulled Mexican Beef) Great for tacos. Makes a lot – so for leftovers, I usually throw back into some chili or make stuffed peppers!


Chicken Corn Chowder  Chicken, corn, and bacon in a creamy soup base. Delicious!
Chicken Fajita Soup Love this one! 
20-minute Tomato Basil Pair with a side salad and some fresh bread for an easy dinner. 


Sweet Potatoes  Like thanksgiving candied yams with marshmallows on top. 
Mac and Cheese  So rich and creamy… The secret for perfect crock-pot m&c is don’t overcook the pasta!
Garlic Parmesan Potatoes Easy side for a pot roast. Would be great in a double crock-pot.

Aaannnd just for fun – a cool hack on turning a single crock pot into a double here

All of these are on my bucket list for this October. Any suggestions? Please share! I’m always looking for new recipes to try.
