Caveman with a Crockpot

Answered on September 12, 2014

It's just another year in college, except I'm paleo this time around!!

Last year, I was living in Scotland and totally NOT paleo, but had a full kitchen in my dorm flat (and yet, somehow still seemed to survive of toast). This time around I'm back in the US of A, but stuck in a dorm with no kitchen. I do have access to a refrigerator, a microwave, and a plug.

Hello Crockpot-- Help a girl out with some awesomely tasty crockpot recipes and/ or any little tricks you have with using a crockpot as your main source of heat.

Like how to boil eggs in a crockpot- haven't figured that one out.

THANK YOU

Glad it can help! I haven't posted much lately.. because my main rotation of dishes is already up there... and I can't claim my photography is pretty, but it's effective enough. :-)

Crock pots are awesome! I have a full kitchen and I still use mine as much as possible.

It takes a couple hours for water to boil in a crock pot, so I imagine you could put a 1/2 dozen eggs in there, cover them with a good amount of water, and turn the crock pot on before class, assuming you'll be coming back home in a hour or so.

Otherwise, there's broths/stocks/soups...

Google says put eggs in crock pot, cover with an inch of water, turn on low, and cook for 3.5 hours.

A yummy variation on this would be to cook them along with a broth or soup (Adds flavor to the eggs, and presumably calcium to the soup).

I kind of wonder if bringing the liquid to a simmer before adding the eggs, and then cooking a shorter time, would be safer, since crock pots take a while to get up to temperature. But 3.5 hours on low seems to be a time-tested way to do it.
