There are lots of things that most campers list as essential items to bring when they are camping. Not everyone thinks of a crockpot but it can end up being one of your favorite small appliances to bring with you. The versatility of this little marvel, its small profile, and low cost can make it move up to the top of your have-to-have-it list.
Bringing a crockpot with you when you’re camping will allow you more time to relax and require less time cleaning up. Both of those can make for lots more fun in your trip and a lot less work. Another advantage is that you can toss dinner in the crockpot in the morning and then walk away. The crockpot does the work for you. Dinner will be ready when you and the family feel like eating. You won’t have to be stuck to a schedule and you won’t have to worry that dinner will burn if you stay in the pool for an extra hour or so.
It’s also a great way to get some veggies into the family. You can combine some lean meat with fresh veggies and let it percolate in the crockpot. The slow cooking process intensifies the flavor and makes everything taste better. And another added benefit is that, for some unknown reason, much of what is cooked in the crockpot tastes even better the next day so lunch is already covered as well.
There are plenty of recipes online you can try that incorporate all your favorite foods and flavors.
