Some red and green sparks on top are also a nice touch

Potato Soup” />

3. Paula Deen’s Crockpot Potato Soup Whenever


need some comforting Christmas food, I turn to this creamy soup


This potato soup is super thick, which is how I like it. If you like yours thinner, you can add a little more broth.

I like to throw a pot early in the morning. Then, when hunger strikes, everyone can help themselves throughout the day.

It doesn’t get any easier than that!

4. Slow cooker Christmas chicken in orange, cinnamon and salted milk

With this recipe, preparing a fancy Christmas dinner doesn’t have to be a big deal


You will take a whole chicken and seal it in butter until you get a beautiful crispy layer


Add some cinnamon and garlic to season, then transfer it to the slow cooker.

From there, top the chicken with milk and orange zest. Chicken will take about 4 hours to cook, so be sure to plan accordingly.

5. Slow Cooker Holiday Ham

Ham is the quintessential Christmas dish, but it can require a lot of work. Or I thought I did until I stumbled upon this great recipe.

This Christmas ham is perfectly marked, so it is tender and juicy every time.

This is a blessing considering how much effort you can spend on a Christmas ham just to have it dry.

And I didn’t even mention the orange jam glaze! This tasty frosting seals the deal.

6. Slow cooking Christmas green beans

Of course, a Christmas ham needs a side dish. And I can’t think of a better accompaniment than these green beans.

While some green bean dishes can be tasteless and mediocre, this one is full of flavor.

Slowly cook these beans until tender with salted bacon, earthy mushrooms, and bacon drops. That’s how you do it at Christmas!

Creamy Mac and Cheese

7. Trisha Yearwood Crockpot Mac and Cheese

There are many reasons to celebrate the holiday season. One of my favorites is all the delicious comfort food, including this macaroon and cheese.

This cheese dish is excellent for Christmas meals or even as a Christmas accompaniment.

But I’d be lying if I didn’t say I eat it for dinner all of December. It’s too delicious to resist!

8. Slow cooker mashed


Mashed potatoes are another classic Christmas dish that everyone loves. One of my favorite ways to do this is with this recipe.

The Crockpot gives the potatoes plenty of time to absorb all the buttery cheese goodness. This means that they are always rich and fluffy.

Speaking of rich, this recipe uses cream cheese, sour cream, parmesan and butter. It may not exactly be skinny friendly, but it’s the season!

9. Warm Crockpot Christmas Punch

This Christmas punch always makes the season a little more cheerful. It’s full of warm Christmas spices and fruity flavors that kids and adults can enjoy.

Apple juice, pineapple juice and cranberry juice are the main base. But I think pear or pomegranate juice will also work.

This will take about 3 hours. So I recommend preparing ahead of time so you’re ready when guests arrive.

10. Burgundy slow cooker

Looking for a special Christmas dish to serve your family? Then look no further than this tasty recipe.

This elegant dish is full of joy!

The sirloin and thick bacon are slowly cooked in a robust broth of Burgundy wine and meat.

There are also a handful of chopped vegetables and dried herbs to spice it up.


. Crockpot Hot Chocolate

No matter which member of my family is hosting, you can bet there’s always some hot chocolate in the Crockpot


I like to keep a bowl of marshmallows, cinnamon spices, and mini candy sticks on the side. That way, everyone can make their own cup.

It’s hard to be a grinch with a hot, rich cup of this hot chocolate


12. Crockpot Sweet Potatoes

Need to cook sweet potatoes, but there is no space in the oven? Make them on the Crockpot instead.

The Crockpot turns sweet potatoes into a tender perfection for the fork. This will take around 3 to 6 hours, depending on whether you use the low or high setting.

Just be sure to pierce each potato with a fork so that they cook completely in the center


13. Clay pot split pea soup


holiday season is a busy time with all the hustle and bustle of shopping, meetings and events


That’s why I prepare a batch of split pea soup to have on hand


The ham makes this soup a little more filling, while the creamy peas are super comforting


The best part is that all you have to do is pour your ingredients into the Crockpot and let them cook.

So, you can give it an ice bath and put it in the freezer.

14. Clay pot dumplings with grape jelly sauce

Appetizer or main course, these succulent meatballs are my Christmas jam!

This recipe uses store-bought dumplings to keep it easy. It also uses chili sauce and grape jelly.

This may sound like a weird combo, but it tastes phenomenal. It is a bit sweet, a little spicy and very simple.

15. Slow

cooker beef breast

The slow cooker manages to create the most succulent and juicy beef breast suitable for Christmas dinner


This perfectly tender breast melts with caramelized onions and mushrooms for a rich meal


To serve, you can combine this with some mashed potatoes and a side of green beans. It will also be good on a toasted bun.

16. The crispy-skinned slow-cooker turkey

isn’t just for

Thanksgiving, it’s also for Christmas!

This game bird is versatile, making it a great main dish to serve with all your favorite holiday accompaniments


But when it comes to cooking, I recommend this recipe. Crispy and tender, this turkey is anything but dry.


. Crockpot Chicken Pot Pot Pie I think a bowl of this pot cake

will be a fantastic meal for Christmas Eve!


Crockpot cooks the filling of the pot cake while baking the flaky, buttery cookies


The result is a creamy and cozy bowl that will satisfy hungry stomachs. That way, no one wakes up and sneaks Santa’s cookies.

18. Slow cooker Scalloped

potatoes with cheese

If you feel like giving mashed potatoes a break, try scalloped instead


The slow cooker does all the cooking for you, making this creamy, cheesey dish a breeze


Unfortunately, the only thing it doesn’t do is all the peeling


So I say, put on some Christmas tunes and lure your helpers in with some hot cooking pot chocolate
