A slow cooker is one of the best ways to make a meal. All you have to do is toss in recipe ingredients and then head out for the day while your slow cooker does all the hard work. A slow cooker casserole is an easy recipe and one of our favorites mainstays because it can be served for breakfast, lunch, or dinner.
Slow Cooker Farmer’s Breakfast Casserole
This easy breakfast slow cooker casserole is hearty and delicious and doesn’t need sides. This recipe gives you the convenience of cooking the eggs right in the slow cooker; however, if you prefer yours scrambled, you can always skip the last step and scramble them on the stovetop.

Slow Cooker Chicken Cordon Bleu Casserole
This delicious French classic is made easy with a twist in this slow cooker casserole recipe. Rather than pounding, stuffing, and rolling the chicken breasts, simply layer ingredients in the slow cooker and cook on low heat for five hours. The dish is cheesy and bubbly, and the corners can brown a bit for some crunchy flavor.
Slow Cooker Chili Casserole
For many, chili is the go-to comfort food for the chilly fall and winter months. You can make it in a slow cooker in about six hours, and it’s packed with protein and hearty flavors. Serve your chili with a side of cornbread or a baked potato, or spice it up with jalapenos or hot sauce. The options are endless. (Image below from Cooking Classy, Slow Cooker Chili.)
Slow Cooker Green Bean Casserole
Green bean casserole is a staple at many Thanksgiving dinner tables. Making this popular dish in a slow cooker takes about two-and-a-half hours on high heat. The only stovetop cooking required is to brown the French fried onions in a dry skillet to the desired crispiness before sprinkling over the finished casserole.
Topped with cheese, bacon, and onions, spuds are the perfect pairing for almost any meal. This slow cooker recipe is easy to make (you only have to slice the potatoes) and takes four hours on low heat. The potatoes soak up the flavor of added bacon, onions, and garlic. Before serving, top with sour cream and chives for a flavor explosion.
A Slow Cooker Lid Pocket Helps Keep Your Countertops Clean
As a fan of the slow cooker casserole, you know how hard it is to keep your surfaces clean from the messy condensation that forms on the lid. And there’s always the question of “where should I put the lid” when stirring, seasoning, and plating the food.
Before you cook another dish, order a Lid Pocket to attach to the rim of your slow cooker (any size up to .75 inches in width). It holds the lid and has a reservoir to catch the condensation, keeping it away from your food and off your countertop. Plus, it’s great not only for home but also for potlucks, parties, and tailgating.
