A crock pot also known as a slow cooker is a countertop electrical cooking appliance that is used mostly for the simmering of recipes.

Slow cookers and crock pots are especially popular amongst busy home cooks, that work during the day.

Casserole recipes are a great way to get a lot of healthy ingredients into one dish. Casserole recipes also work well in crock pots, where you can prepare and put in the ingredients in the morning and simmer them during the day for dinner. Typically casserole recipes in the United States or continental Europe include meat, usually chicken or fish with tuna being a popular casserole ingredient, a variety of chopped vegetables, a starchy binder such as rice, flour, potato or pasta, and a crunchy or cheesy topping. Liquids in the casserole are released from the meat and vegetables while they are cooking, and further liquid can be added in the form of wine, stock, beer, or vegetable juice when the dish is assembled. Casserole recipes are typically cooked slowly in the oven usually uncovered. Casserole recipes may be served as a main course or a side dish, and may be served in the cooking dish they were baked in. To make a casserole recipe you can either cook it in a slow cooker or you will want to have an oven proof baking dish that will work. Dutch ovens are a good casserole dish and are available in a variety of sizes for the recipe that you need.
