    It's not really a crockpot recipe.. but I make it in the crockpot. I've had people over who have 'loved' it and tried to make it..but its quite simple..

    Spicy Spaghetti Sauce.

    In the crockpot I start a can of tomatoes (i use diced but blended 'almost smooth' and I season it only with seasoning salt & pepper that I put in just before blending it with a hand held blender)..

    Meanwhile.. I boil my hot italian sausage till for 15-20 mins (from frozen).. drain water and take em out.. in same pan (i use a big pan with lid) I melt butter & fry usually 2 cans of mushrooms while cutting the sausage into bite size pieces. Toss sausage back into the butter & mushrooms and fry for about 5-8 minutes. (You can use onions or whatever u like too.. ) add this mixture to the tomatoes.. (its imperative u get all the "juice and goodies" from the pan too) [img]/ubbthreads/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/smile.gif[/img]

    Depending on how much you want.. I've added a 1/2 - full can of spaghetti sauce and this last week when I made it I added about 12 of those frozen italian meatballs.. add garlic powder & onion powder (if didn't use fresh) and bring to boil.. I simmer on med-low for 2-3hrs.. [img]/ubbthreads/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/smile.gif[/img]

    Sorry so lengthy and stuff..Im not good at posting..specially from my "head" hehe.

    I use my crack pot for everything. Hubby makes French Onion Soup in it too. Roast Beef is wonderful in a crock pot.

    LOL....omg i needed that laugh.....thx.....crack pot.......that was the best!!!!

    almost any recipe you cook can be adjusted to your crock pot.

    some take a little adjusting as to liquid amounts.....my suggestion is to experiment

    and have fun

    crockpot sticky chicken

    4 tsp salt
    2 tsp paprika
    1 tsp cayenne pepper
    1 tsp onion powder
    1 tsp thyme
    1 tsp white pepper
    1/2 tsp garlic powder
    1/2 tsp black pepper
    1 large roasting chicken
    1 cup chopped onion

    In a small bowl, thoroughly combine all the spices. Remove giblets from chicken, clean the cavity well and pat dry with paper towels. Rub the spice mixture into the chicken, both inside and out, making sure it is evenly distributed and down deep into the skin. Place in a resealable plastic bag, seal and refrigerate overnight.

    When ready to cook chicken put the onions into the cavity, put the bird into the crockpot and do not add any liquid. As the cooking process goes on it will produce it's own juices. Cook on low 8 to 10 hours and it will be falling off the bone tender.
