I want to cook up some cabbage and potatoes today. Can I do this in the crockpot? Is there anything else I need to add to this for flavor? Suggestion? P.S. I'm going to eat ham with this for dinner, but it's a pre-cooked ham slice so I will add it at the end.

Go ahead and stuff the cabbage in the crockpot and put the potatoes atop that with a bit of water or broth if you have it. Then yes the ham can go on top of that and lend its flavors too. It would also go nicely atop the stove. Be a bit quicker I think. However you do it, this bubble and squeak will be a taste treat this evening.

Willowlady....I have to thank you very, very much! I made this tonight on top of the stove and it was fabulous!!! I found a recipe online and omitted the bacon but it was still so good!

I put cabbage in the crockpot about 2hrs before serving if on Low. Maybe an hour all it has to do is steam. I am having Colcannon (potato, onion, cabbage mix) in the oven for supper. mmm

Personally, I think your cabbage will turn to mush in a crock pot. I would steam it until it is just cooked through and top with salt, pepper and butter. mmmmmmm I had that last week...

I'd add a cup of apple juice or cider with the cabbage. Makes a great flavor to the veggies and meat (making gravy from the drippingsis fantastic). But what for dessert? CROCKPOT BANANA BREAD ===================== (Makes 4 to 6 servings) Ingredients: ------------ 1 3/4 cup flour 2 tsp baking powder 1/4 tsp baking soda 1/2 tsp salt 1/3 cup shortening 2/3 cup sugar 2 eggs, well beaten 1 1/2 cups well mashed, overripe banana (2 or 3 bananas) 1/2 cup coarsely chopped walnuts (optional) Instructions: ------------- Sift together the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. With the electric beater on low, fluff the shortening in a small bowl, until soft and creamy. Add the sugar gradually. Beat in the eggs in a slow stream. With a fork, beat in 1/3 of the flour mixture, 1/2 the bananas another 1/3 of the flour mixture, the rest of the bananas then the last of the flour mixture. Fold in the walnuts (optional). Turn into a greased and floured baking unit or a 2 1/2 quart mold and cover. Place on a rack in the slow cooker. Cover the cooker, but prop the lid open with a toothpick or a twist of foil to let the excess steam excape. Cook on high for 4 to 6 hours. Cool on a rack for 10 minutes. Serve Warm.

Okay, I'm not really sure about the ham & cabbage because that's not my favorite St. Pat's food. I prefer irish stew and a glass of Guiness stout in there makes all the difference. It's amazing how much better it gets. Maybe you could get really adventurous and add a little to the ham & cabbage. LOL Happpy Saint Patrick's Day!
