100 Days of Summer Slow Cooker Recipes


We’re doing it again!  And this year’s line up of Summer Slow Cooker Recipes is going to be even bigger than last year’s!

You won’t find any soups or stews in this series.  We’ll save those for fall and winter.  Instead, we’ll be focusing on meals that have a bit of summer flair or that can be enjoyed year round.

The main thing is we want to keep the cooking simple this summer so you can enjoy other things.  And we’ll keep our kitchens cool too!

You can expect to see main dishes, sides and dessert recipes too.

The series starts on May 12 and will run for 100 days, until August 19.  I’ll be adding the links to all the recipes to this main post as we go along. Update 2015: We’ll be doing an all new 30 Days of Summer Slow Cooker Recipes starting in June.

Each day we’ll share a new Summer Slow Cooker recipe.  Some will be from Eat at Home.  Some will be from around the web.  I’ll be throwing in a few brand new ones that I create, as well.

If you love using your slow cooker, check out our Slow Cooker Weekly Meal Plans with grocery lists, printable recipes, slow cooker freezer meals and more!

P.S. One of our Weekly Meal Plan members shared this when renewing her yearly membership, “I thought I’d try to save $50 and not re-enroll. But after a couple of weeks of that, I realized that Eat At Home is both a money-saver and a time-saver.  So … I’m back.  Thanks again for all the work you do!  I’m so appreciative!” Find out how you can become a member by clicking here.

I’ll also be posting other types of recipes, cooking tips and the sneak peeks at the Weekly Meal Plans each week.  That means that some days we’ll have more than one post for you.  Don’t worry if you’re an email subscriber though, you’ll still get just one email daily or weekly, depending on which you opted for when you signed up.  All the posts for the day/week will be in that email. (You are on the email list, aren’t you?  You won’t want to miss these summer slow cooker recipes!)

  1. I LOVE using my crockpot in the summer! Very excited about this upcoming series 🙂

  2. Yay I love this… I usually only use my slow cooker in the Winter but love the convenience of it… So I will be excited to hear about Summer recipes!

  3. Nancy A. says:

    Love using my slow cooker. In the summer it keeps the kitchen cooler. Just don’t know what to make in summer, so am looking forward to your series. I am used to the soups, but don’t want those in the hot weather. Can’t wait!!!

  4. Holly Hope says:

    Looking forward to all the new recipes. I am on bed rest after an illness, but can turn on my slow cooker!

  5. These sound great! Thanks!

  6. Amy carter says:

    How do you keep the fat in meats from making the dishes look odd? The meals don’t taste bad but appearance is changed in the sauces, etc I find often. I assume it’s from the fat within the meat. Any solutions? Thank you.

  7. I put my crockpot in the garage, back porch, or basement up off the ground in the summer. As long as it is protected from animals this works fantastically. Crock pots can still put a lot of heat off in the house so I get it out and keep my house cool.

    • Chelsey says:

      I do the same thing and love it. I’m the kind of person that tends to forget that I have put dinner in the crock pot. More than once I have walked through the garage in the middle of the day to be pleasantly surprised by the delicious smell of dinner already underway!

  8. I use my slow cookers (yes multiple cookers) during the summer. Cuts back on the electric bill since it doesn’t heat up the house 🙂

  9. Cindy Ward says:

    I would Love to have a home cooked meal ,I haven’t used my slow cooker since. …..Wow I can’t remember the last time, it’s been that long lol, looking forward to dusting it off, and usung it. Sounds good already. Thank you.

  10. Linda Stucki says:

    Can’t wait to see some great crockpot recipes. All I’ve ever done is beans. Will be fun to see what we can throw together from home & garden- thanks. “-“

  11. I havent used my crock pot very much cause I hate cleaning it, but no wI have “discovered” the liners and meals like this that I have been looking for….. Watch out family here comes my crock pot!! 🙂

    • Anonymous says:

      they have come out with crock pot liners. omg they are wonderful. you find them by the foil.

    • Anonymous says:

      If you cant find them I have used turkey roasting bags too! I mean if they can handle a 350 + degree oven they can handle the crock pot.

  12. Loretta McReynolds says:

    I live alone but would like to cook easy. I cook in large quantities and freeze.for future meals. I am tired of stews, chili, beans, and soup. I’d like something new easy and delicious.

  13. I like this idea and post but didn’t appreciate the click-through-wild-goose-chase to get each recipe.

  14. Danielle says:

    I was wondering if I could combine all the ingredients in a freezer bag & freeze and whenever I’m ready just thaw and put in the slow cooker?

  15. Has anyone ever cooked meatless (Ukrainian style) cabbage rolls in a crock pot
    I would like to try it this summer but would appreciate some feedback before I wreck something.

    • Emily, I’ve never tried the meatless, but it seems like it would work. Do they have rice in them?

      • Yes. Of course they have rice in them. I actually tried a small casserole yesterday. I cooked them on high for 4 hours from almost frozen and they were yummy. I’m thinking probably 8 hours for the 5 quart slow cooker on low after they have heated up. What do you think?

  16. I am not getting all the recipes I only have to 63 you are at 67 help it is not in the junk thanks

    • Tina, I found your email on the email list. I’m not sure why you wouldn’t be getting them. That’s strange. I’ll look into it.

  17. Is there anyway to post the nutrition information like salt and fat content. thanks

  18. Wheres the rest of the 15??
    I did though, print off a ton new ideas!! 🙂
    Thanks anyway!!

    I have so glad that I have found this site!!! I am scheduled for major surgery on 6/10 that will be followed by a very lengthy recovery that includes 4-6 weeks on a clear liquid diet then 3-4 months on a regular liquid (this follows an extremely aggressive BUT SUCESSFUL chemo regimen … so although it may sound horrible, I am actually very fortunate)! With a large family (6 children), I wondered how I was going to keep up with nutritious meals this summer with no energy and no appetite. However, after finding this article, I am not nearly as worried. As soon as I am back on my feet and back to work, I plan to purchase a year’s subscription of the meal planning … but for now, that cost is out of the question. I am so excited about this article and using my crockpot for these recipes!!!! THANK YOU for sharing!!!
