Quick Breads for Slow-Cooked Meals

By Megan Myers, October 9, 2013  |  Meet the Blogger  |  More Posts by Megan Myers

When fall arrives, I automatically start thinking about what meals I’m going to be creating in the slow cooker. It’s not just because of the cooler temperatures – the hustle and bustle of back-to-school routines and approaching holidays makes getting dinner on the table fast a priority.

Quick breads, biscuits and other no-yeast breads are a great way to round out a slow-cooker meal. They’re perfect for mopping up that last bit of broth in your bowl, and if you choose the right flavors, can be a wonderful complement to whatever has been bubbling away all day.

Bacon Bread

Bacon Bread

Use up extra bacon in this savory quick bread. Leftovers, if you manage to have any, are great toasted for breakfast the next day.

Borough Market Cheddar Popovers

Borough Market Cheddar Popovers

Popovers seem fancy, but actually come together quickly. This cheese and chive version is perfect with a hearty beef stew.

Whole Wheat Cornbread Muffins

Whole Wheat Cornbread Muffins

Cornbread holds its own against soups and stews, and this muffin version makes it handy, too. Those avoiding dairy should try our dairy-free cornbread recipe.

Coconut Oil Biscuits

Coconut Oil Biscuits

These tender biscuits made with coconut oil are a nice change-up, but if you prefer a more classic biscuit, try our Fresh Herb Buttermilk Biscuits.

Bacon, Walnut and Thyme Scones

Bacon, Walnut and Thyme Scones

Scones mix up and bake in a flash, and can be customized in almost endless ways. Bacon is a hit again in this recipe, or try Cheddar and Chive Scones.

@CINDY - We have a website online for recipes but the recipes online are not necessarily the dishes we have in the store. If you are looking for a particular recipe from a dish in the store, check with the store and if they have a recipe, they will be happy to share it!

Hmmm, bacon, cheese and more bacon - we're moving away from meat and cheese, where are the berries and nuts?
