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.
Use up extra bacon in this savory quick bread. Leftovers, if you manage to have any, are great toasted for breakfast the next day.
Popovers seem fancy, but actually come together quickly. This cheese and chive version is perfect with a hearty beef stew.
