As Christmas approaches, things start to get busy – a little too busy to spend half a day slaving over the hob.
When there is little time to make meals, these slow cooker recipes can be the solution.
You can also use the slow cooker to cook some of your Christmas dishes, which will free up your oven too.
So if you have a slow cooker and aren’t quite sure what do with it, dust it off and have a go at these recipes.
