St Patty's Day Dip

You never can have too many dip recipes...dips are great for so many things...they are simple and tasty...

St Patty's Day Dip

First set of ingredients:

1 (8 ounce) box cream cheese
1 (8 ounce) container sour cream
1 cup Swiss cheese
1/2 lb deli corned beef, sliced thin
1 (8 ounce) refrigerated sauerkraut

Put these ingredients into the Crock pot and cook on HIGH for one hour. Don't worry about mixing the ingredients together at this time. You won't be able to do that until some of the ingredients melt.

Next set of ingredients:

2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
2 Tablespoons milk
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder

After the first hour, add the next set of ingredients and mix. Cook for another 30 minutes on HIGH. After mixture has gotten hot, remove from heat and serve with crackers.

Happy Slow Cooking! Enjoy and Hugs...

St Patricks Day Recipes

OMG! I can't believe I have gone one month without posting a recipe on Hazel's Crock Pot Kitchen! Where has time gone...I guess what they say is true...the older you get the faster time flies...sigh..

I have decided to post some St Patrick's Day Recipes this week and try to get back in the swing of things...I hope you have been enjoying your slow cooker and all the wonderful things you can create in them...

You can't have St Patrick's day without Corned Beef and Cabbage, so I thought I would start with that recipe...

Corned Beef and Cabbage

4 to 5 lbs corned beef, seasoned
1- 1/2 cups water
2 parsnips, chopped up
8 ounces, baby carrots
8 small potatoes
10 small white onions
1 head of cabbage, cored and cut into wedges
dried thyme leaves
mustard or horseradish sauce (optional)

Place all ingredients in crock pot (not cabbage) and sprinkle with the thyme leaves. Cook on LOW for 8 hours adding the cabbage in the last 2 hours of cooking.

Happy Slow Cooking! Enjoy and Hugs!
