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


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


  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 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!

Southern Fried Chicken Strips

  Sometimes I defrost something with a specific meal in mind, and then the weather completely makes me crave something else.   We had a nice sunny warm stretch of weather here in New Hampshire over the weekend.   It was easy to ignore my menu plan of a heavy, creamy chicken and pasta dish for some crispy, golden brown fried chicken. I chose this recipe , and made very minor changes- first, I used Penzey's Roasted Garlic instead of regular garlic powder.   Second, I held the salt out of the flour mixture, I prefer to salt fried foods as they come out of the oil instead.   I also omitted the parmesan cheese, it didn't need it. I don't fry often, so I'm always glad when the recipe turns out to be worth it.  Using tenderloins made for a quick fry, and the crunchy outside stayed put when you cut them with a fork.    There was just the right amount of seasoning for the guys, though I admit I'd have like to have swapped out the paprika for some cayenne pepper.   I l

Copycat Dunkin Donuts Power Breakfast Sandwich

I'm one of those people that preparedness makes all of the difference.  If I have easy snack and meal choices ready to go, then I can resist the call of the drive through.  I've been enjoying baked eggs for a while now, usually with sauteed peppers and onion, on top of a whole grain English muffin.  When Dunkin Donuts came out with their new Power Breakfast Sandwich I immediately thought, I can make that at home! I started with the same base baked eggs recipe that I've been using.  I do normally use whole eggs, but for this version to keep it true to the Dunkin Donuts one, I just used the whites.  I sauteed diced bell pepper and onion until they were soft, then let them cool.  I chopped up some baby spinach, discarding the stems.  I had lots of eggs on hand, so I separated them myself, but you could definitely use the store bought egg whites. I beat the egg whites, added a bit of salt and pepper, the veggies, and then poured them into a sprayed muffin top pan .  Bake
