A couple of weeks ago, I found an awesome recipe on, you guessed it, Pinterest! But the website where it was pinned from was http://skinnyms.com/slow-cooker-beans-and-rice/. Okay, now that we got that out of the way, let’s proceed. I am just going to show you pictures and such, not actually give the recipe. It requires quite a few ingredients, and frankly, I kinda did what I wanted to it anyways. You know how to use the internet, right? Good. With your parent’s permission, please see said website above.
First of all, one of the additions I did was:
So, the recipe calls for red bell peppers only, but I like color, so I used orange and yellow too. (Because again, I do what I want). I also added the minced garlic, onion, and celery. See, I follow directions sometimes, err part of the way….
So, get those veggies sauteed… it brings out that flavor! Again, check out the recipe for all of the ingredients and step by step instructions. So the next thing I needed to do was to get my meatballs together. I didn’t have any chicken or turkey burger lying around, but what I did have was deer burger, the best burger of all. Shout out to my Grandpa (G-UNIT!!!) But this burger had a special surprise in it… Bacon! Even better, the only reason I am NOT a vegetarian. I baked them after I got them them rolled up, because if you’ve ever used deer burger, you know it bleeds pretty good, and I did not want that nastiness up in my food. I just baked them at 350* for about 15 minutes. Also, the recipe for the meatballs don’t call for an egg. I used one, and I recommend it, if you want them to stay together.
After all the meat handling and during the baking process, I threw all of the other ingredients in the crock together to get this party rolling.
Then in with the meat:
Cook on low for about five hours. Then the final product:
This isn’t too shabby for being “healthy.” If you end up trying it, let me know what you think!!
