I mentioned this little crockpot last week and I received it on Saturday. I am working from home today and decided to try it to see how it worked before taking it in the car with me. I am absolutely in love with this thing. I want to say that I am NOT getting paid by this company to endorse it. I had a neighbor recommend it to me and it is fantastic. It is not meant to cook your food. It is meant to be used with leftovers and it will heat them to a perfect temperature in about 3-4 hours. Let me show you how it works.
To purchase this little food warmer- go here. 20 ounce crockpot lunch pot
It has this great little handle which is perfect for carrying from your home to the car.
The cord wraps around the bottom and snaps into place underneath it.
The little dishwasher safe container has a lid that snaps on.I filled this last night and sat it in my fridge. This morning I dropped it into my container and screwed on the lid and plugged it into the outlet.
At noon my chili was warm. The outside of the crockpot was barely warm to the touch. No danger of burning from the outside if you touch it. The cheese began to melt the second that it touched the chili. It holds 20 ounces of food. I am so excited about this little container. I will finally have hot food in my car as I bought an inverter to plug it into the car with. To buy the inverter to use in the car go here. Inverter
This is a quick meal for 2 that can be made in less than 10 minutes in one pot. I love this one better than the one with broccoli and polish sausage.
Brussel Sprouts with Polish Sausage
- 2 polish sausage links, sliced
- 1 package frozen brussel sprout in steamable bag
- 2 teaspoon butter
- 1 teaspoon garlic, minced
- pepper to taste
- Parmesan Cheese
Place frozen brussel sprout in microwave and cook according to package directions (mine says 4 1/2 minutes). Meanwhile in pan melt butter and toss in garlic and slightly saute garlic. Drop in cooked brussel sprouts and cook stirring for several minutes until slightly browned. Add polish sausage and cook until they are also slightly browned. Divide onto 2 plates and top with Parmesan cheese.
As a single woman I have found most of my recipes are just too large for a single person or even a couple who don’t want to be eating the same meal for more than one extra evening. I found this recipe to be very good, quick and it only made one serving. Of course if you want to make it for your family feel free to increase the portions. It can be easily done.
You will need to have everything chopped prior to beginning to cook as it cooks very quickly and you will need to stir non-stop. There will not be need to add additional salt as the bacon, polish sausage and the Saute Express all contain salt.
Polish Sausage with Bacon and Broccoli
- 3 slices of thin sliced bacon, cut into bite size pieces
- 1 bunch of broccoli with florets cut into bite size pieces
- 2 polish sausage links, sliced into bite size pieces
- 1 square, LandOLakes Saute Express- Garlic and Herb
Fry bacon in a nonstick pan and when cooked entirely remove the bacon from the pan but leave the grease. Add the Saute Express square to the pan and stir quickly to melt. Toss in broccoli and continue to stir non-stop until broccoli is almost completed. Add polish sausage and stir another minute to heat thoroughly. Serve hot. This could also be good with cheese on it but I liked it as is. One very large serving or 2 small.
