13 Slow Cooker Gameday Go-Tos

Football is back and we couldn’t be happier. Whether you are gathering around the TV to watch your favorite college or NFL team (or both), no gameday is complete without the right grub. The slow cooker is our best friend on game days. You set it and forget it, then get busy preparing other snacks, decking the house out in your team’s colors, and maybe sending a few trash-talk texts – all while the food cooks. These 13 recipes are our go-to slow cooker recipes for gameday. From sandwiches, to dips, to chili, these recipes are sure to keep the fans in your house happy – (and Go Hokies!  Sorry, have to plug my alma mater every now and then).

    My very favourite slow cooker recipe is a great pot of chili or irish stew. When it is cooked after a long day at work – MAGIC.
