For an easy slow cooker dinner, as part of a sponsored post for Collective Bias®
I made this New England Dip Sandwich using Kraft Recipe Makers for my family.
As most of you know- things here have been absolutely nutty. Between having company this past week, working on product photography sets for a client & some really special family portraits for a friend, the projects I am trying to get put together for the holidays & then pumping 60-70 hours a week into the blog- I need the days to be longer. But since I can’t make that happen, I have to do what I can to make everything else around here happen quickly & efficiently. So finding things to make dinner tonight simple & easy is a top priority. The hubs works 60+ hours a week himself- so asking him to come home & cook too would be just plain mean. We reserve a lot of our time consuming meals to our days off & have found some quick family meals that work for us on the super busy days. When I was asked to try the new Kraft Recipe Makers– I was all for it. But we always like to do things differently. Even if we are using a semi-ready made meals recipe we like to make it our own. So we came up with…
We shopped for it as a family – which was nice because we rarely do the market as a group.
Look how cute the munchkin is watching the hubs pick out the meat.
For the pot roast.
Just place the meat in- top with the veggies & then the simmer sauce & seasonings.
Cook on high 6-8 hours. Add the finishing sauce at the end.
Prep your bread with butter, garlic powder & Parmesan cheese & broil. Then add your pot roast.
Don’t forget your bowl of sauce to dip in.

This worked out great for me. I was able to get it prepped in just a few minutes & then it was ready by the time the hubs came home. The prep for the buns was simple & so the whole meal came together quick & easy. Very little clean up too- which always makes me happy. So nice to be able to have a hearty, hot meal- even if we are short on time.
