Slow Cooker Garlic Butter Corn on the Cob

*This is a sponsored post. I received product to use in creation of my #CookoutWeek recipes.  All opinions are my own.*


I hope that you are enjoying #CookoutWeek so far!  I know that I'm pinning tons of recipes to try.  I first started making corn on the cob in the slow cooker back in the summer of 2015.   My guys love corn on the cob and I was looking for a way to do it that was less effort, but still delicious. 

All you do is clean the silk and husk off the corn, lay it on a square of foil, smear it with some butter and whatever herbs and seasonings you like.  Wrap it up tightly, pop it in the slow cooker, and add about an inch of water. Cook it on high for 3 to 4 hours.   This is my go to method now.   

And just when I thought it couldn't get any easier, I was introduced to Chef Shamy Butter.  I was sent the Garlic Butter with parmesan and basil, and I knew right away I wanted to use it for corn on the cob.  I added about a tablespoon to each packet.  Absolutely delicious. When a crazy day threw my dinner plans out the window,   I melted it, dipped boneless skinless chicken breast into it, which I then dredged in seasoned panko crumbs and baked.  Clean plates all around.  It also makes great garlic bread! 





Slow Cooker Garlic Butter Corn on the Cob

Slow Cooker Garlic Butter Corn on the Cob

ingredients:

  • 6 ears corn, husked
  • Chef Shamy Garlic Butter with parmesan and basil
  • Water
  • Aluminum foil
  • Optional: Additional parmesan cheese

instructions:

  1. Rip off squares of heavy duty aluminum foil, making sure they are large enough to completely enclose corn. Lay an ear of corn on the foil and add 1 tablespoon of the garlic butter. Bring ends of foil up and fold over until it is secure. Twist the ends of the foil and fold them upwards. Place in slow cooker. Repeat with remaining ears.
  2. Add water to the bottom of the slow cooker until it is about 1" deep. Cook on high for 3 to 4 hours, until the corn is tender. Carefully open packets, place corn on serving plate and pour any excess butter over the top. Sprinkle with additional parmesan cheese, if desired.

Copycat Dunkin Donuts Bacon and Cheddar Omelet Bites

Since I already came up with a version of Dunkin Donuts new Egg White & Veggie Omelet Bites for myself, I decided to make the other variety that they are offering, Bacon & Cheddar, for my husband. Super simple.  Beat up some eggs with salt and pepper.  Add in some shredded cheddar and a slice of bacon cut into 1/4" pieces (I used kitchen shears).  Bake them for about 9 minutes in sprayed mini donut pans. They baked up light and fluffy.  The bacon stayed crisp and there's just the perfect amount of cheese.   I split them up into portions in zip top bags and that way we can just grab a bag and warm them up. My husband laughed when I told him 3 is the serving size.  I'll definitely be doubling the recipe next time! ************************* Copycat Dunkin Donuts Bacon & Cheddar Omelette Bites Print With Image Without Image Author: Jolene's Recipe Journal Ingredients 4 large eggs 1/4 teaspoon salt 1/2 teaspoon pepper 3T shredded cheddar cheese 1 slice cooked ba

Copycat Dunkin Donuts Egg White & Veggie Omelet Bites

I'm a huge fan of the Dunkin Donuts Power Breakfast sandwich, so when I started seeing ads for the new Egg White & Veggie Omelet Bites I stopped in and gave them a try.  They were delicious, but of course, I knew I could make them at home.  I started with the whites of six eggs. You can use pasturized whites if you don't want to do the whole separating, finding a use for the yolks thing.  I beat them up with some salt and pepper. Next up, the tomato and spinach.  I used grape tomatoes, seeded them and then chopped them into 1/4" pieces. I like baby spinach, and I took about 10 leaves and chopped those up into 1/4" pieces as well. I added that to the egg mixture.  When you pour it into the pans, be sure that it all gets evenly distributed.   They bake up pretty quickly, around 9 minutes or so.  Dunkin gives you two egg bites, the mini donut serving size is three. I pop them in ziplocs in the fridge and just pull a bag and reheat them in the microwave for a quick

Copycat Olive Garden Fried Lasagna

On a recent trip to Olive Garden, I tried the Lasagna Fritta.   Fried pasta and cheeses, with two fantastic sauces.    Few chain restaurant dishes stick with me, but I had a hard time getting this one out of my mind.   I decided I wanted to recreate it at home, but instead of an appetizer portion, I wanted dinner size.    It's a little fidgety, but once you get an assembly line process going, it's pretty smooth.   I used pre-shredded/grated cheeses, you are more than welcome to shred your own.   I also used store bought marinara and alfredo, but it would be over-the-top fantastic with from-scratch sauces. This was a huge hit here.   While it's not something that I'd make weekly, it was a fun way to present lasagna to my picky eater, who doesn't like a lot of red sauce.  Since there are only 3 of us, I froze the remaining fried bundles in single serve portions.   They can be heated from frozen, or defrosted in the fridge overnight.    Enjoy!   Fried Lasagna P
