I will try any interesting looking recipe at least once. I was, once, given a recipe for a chocolate pudding cake. It had liquids & mixes, all just mixed together in the slow cooker. I thought, for sure, that it was going to be a disaster. It wasn't your usual cake, that's for sure. I had to spoon it out. (Looked like a gloopy mess, in other words.) It tasted good, tho...being dessert . emoticon I didn't keep the recipe, tho. It was too strange & I didn't need to repeat it.

What I just shared in another thread, about my nearly burnt turkey & dressing casserole. Me & my clueless-how-to-use-an-electric-frying-pan
-self. emoticon We ate in, anyway, and hubby said it was good. I gave him lots of warning ahead of time.

As far as crock pot flops.... I tried a chocolate cake recipe, once. It had a lot of liquids in it PLUS using a pudding mix, along with a cake mix. Everything was poured & mixed together in the crockpot. I thought that, for sure, it would just be a schloppy mess. It actually tasted really good. Yes, it was gloopy. I will try almost any interesting sounding recipe, once. I tried the cake/pudding & promptly forgot (or tossed out) the recipe. Don't plan to fix it again.

I remember fixing a big pot of potato broccoli soup, once, and keeping it warm in the crockpot. Didn't actually fix it in the crockpot. I'm more used to thickening it on the stove, instead. I will try fixing the whole thing in the crockpot & see how it goes. I emoticon potato soup, too.....with or without broccoli; with or without ham. Either way, it's all good.

I'm going to agree about the lasagna. That was my worst crockpot meal, as well. I thought I followed directions. I used the noodles they recommended, but, did not use enough of them. It was all sauce, mostly. Just yuck. Crock was all the wrong shape to fit the flat noodles, anyway; even tho I used the shorter squarish shaped ones.

I love potato soup, but I just cannot get it right. Only I could screw up potato soup.

Do you have a good potato soup crockpot recipe to share?

Lasagna. I had my doubts about it before hand and I should have listened to my instincts. It was not good at all. This was years ago. I was so mad I wasted money on ingredients and had to scrub the crock, lol. I think I ended up making a frozen pizza instead.

Self-control is knowing you can - but deciding you won't.

Black bean soup. This was back when black beans were becoming more popular. The beans were not done even after a long cook time. Went out to dinner.

I saw instructions for cooking a whole chicken in the crock pot. I would advise you not to try this at home as it did not turn out well for me...

There was much rejoicing!

So I was sooo looking forward to delicious roast beef. Delicious like the first time I made it. Fail! The beef is not tender, it's very tough.

What was the worst meal you ever cooked in a Crock Pot? What made it the worse?
