Using my slow cooker definitely helps me to feel like I am winning at life. If we are having a super busy day I am just able to sit down, at 5pm, with my family, knowing that the slow cooker has taken care of everything. Today I want to share with you my slow cooker gammon joint with balsamic & orange glaze. If you want to get right to it then skip to the end of this post for the full recipe card.

In our home, we are partial to a takeaway or two! This has led to quite a large amount of money spend in recent years and we are working to cut this down now. I’ve been testing out lots of takeaway style recipes in my slow cooker recently and this slow cooker BBQ ribs recipe has become a new family favourite!

I’m a BIG fan of using my slow cooker. I love the ease of loading it up in the morning, leaving it cooking for the day and then serving up a delicious and cheap meal. Easy slow cooker recipes, UK ones, are my absolute favourite. Anything that takes 10 minutes or less to prepare and then cooks all day is great for me!

I’m a real fan of using my slow cooker. During the day I can spend a few minutes loading it up and then when my husband gets home we have dinner ready. I love the convenience of the slow cooker and that we can eat our dinner, together, whenever we are ready. This means if our daughter is ill, or stays up later than expected, that our dinner is ruined. Today I want to share with you my slow cooker cottage pie. This takes just over 5 minutes to get into the slow cooker. If you’re looking for some inspiration for other slow cooker recipes then be sure to check out my Easy slow cooker recipes (UK recipes).
We love lasagne in our home. It is a fantastic way to batch cook, and save money. I typically make up a huge load of mince, vegetarian or meat, and add to it multiple vegetables and anything that needs using up from the bottom of the fridge. My favourite vegetables to add to a lasagne are onions, celery, peppers, mushrooms and grated carrots. When making up a large batch of vegetarian or meat mince we are able to then turn this into spaghetti bolognese, a slow cooker chilli or this slow cooker vegetarian lasagne. It is very easily adaptable, depending on dietary requirements, and you can even make a gluten-free slow cooker lasagne with ease.
