It is COLD. Real COLD. So cold that when our plane touched down in Minnesota on Sunday Jake and I may have second guessed our decision to move here a little bit. Thankfully the Twin Cities have much to offer beyond their chilly temps or we may have been on the next flight back south.
When it’s cold out and it takes so much effort to go out and about or do anything for that matter, the last thing I feel like doing is making a complicated recipe for dinner. Instead, I usually make something easy that will give me the fastest route to cozy up on the couch and turn the fireplace on afterward.
With the ample supply of beef in the freezer from my dad’s farm, tonight’s meal will be hamburgers. Obviously grilling isn’t an option for us right now, so I’m turning to my trusty crockpot. I’ve made them a couple times using the slow cooker before and they turned out super juicy and flavorful. Just because it’s cold doesn’t mean we need to deprive ourselves of a good burger!
-2 lbs. ground beef, thawed
-1 package dry onion soup mix
-salt and pepper to taste
Instructions: Create a tin foil grill in the bottom of your crockpot so the burgers so cook in the grease. Mix the ground beef and dry onion soup mix together. Form patties and place on top of the tin foil grill. Season with salt and pepper. Cook on low for 2 – 3 hours. Serve and enjoy!
Question: What is an easy crockpot dish that you go to during the colder months?
Stay warm today, everyone! I’m keeping the diet hot chocolate flowing this afternoon!
