TEXARKANA, Ark. –
You don’t want to be in the kitchen cooking while everyone is enjoying the Super Bowl
game. Instead, let your slow cooker do all the work.
Provide your family and friends with tasty, nutritious game day food using your slow
cooker, or as some call it, your crock pot®.
Is there a difference between a slow cooker and a crock pot®? No. The only difference
is in the name. They both cook the same.
Crock pot® is the brand name of a line of slow cookers. The name, slow cooker, is
the generic product name for a stand-alone appliance with a heating element and ceramic
casserole which cooks foods with slow, moist heat. Regardless of how you see it referred
to in an article or recipe, it means the same type of appliance.
When slow cookers were first introduced in the early 1970’s, many bought them. With
catchy marketing slogans such as “cooks all day while the cook’s away,” why wouldn’t
you want to come home to a meal already prepared.
Since the slow cooker involves simmering foods for extended periods of time at fairly
low temperatures, foods can be started in the morning and will be ready to eat after
work. So, as funny as it may sound, slow cookers are an excellent way to reduce your
actual cooking time.
If you question the use of a slow cooker due to food safety issues, there are guidelines
to assure that the food you are cooking does not remain in the temperature danger
zone for too long. When cooking dinner in your slow cooker, problems can be avoided
if you follow these easy guidelines:
food goes into the cooker.
Slow cookers can be an asset to your Super Bowl buffet. To minimize clean up, use
a slow cooker liner. They are life changing when it comes to clean up.
For more information, contact the Miller County Extension Office, 870-779-3609 or
visit us in room 215 at the Miller County Courthouse. We're online at firstname.lastname@example.org,

Try these Buffalo Chicken Sliders for your Super Bowl game buffet. They are easy to
make, and you get to enjoy the game.
4 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
1 (17.5 fluid ounce) bottle buffalo wing sauce, divided
1/2 (1 ounce) package dry ranch-style salad dressing mix
2 tablespoons margarine
Whole wheat rolls, split lengthwise
Place chicken breasts in slow cooker. If you desire hot flavor, pour in three-fourths
of the bottle of wing sauce over chicken; for mild flavor, pour one-half of the bottle
over the chicken. Add ranch dressing mix and stir. Cover and cook on low for 5 to
6 hours. Once the chicken is cooked, shred the meat finely with two forks. Add margarine,
remaining sauce, if desired; continue to cook for one hour more. Pile the meat onto
buns and splash with remaining buffalo sauce to taste.
Optional Toppings: sliced onion, blue cheese crumbles, shredded cheddar, or shredded
