Can you use 9 quick and easy slow cooker appetizers? I love my slow cookers for entertaining because I can set and forget them with slow cooker appetizers for a few hours while I wait for my guests. One reader recently made a comment mentioning she had several slow cookers she would use for parties. She would line them up on the counter and guests could enjoy the recipes she had prepared. This is a fabulous idea! I only have three slow cookers but I’m thinking I want to invite a few friends over and have everyone bring a slow cooker with an appetizer to share with the recipe in hand.

There is something yummy about a warm appetizer, right? Of course, I love any kind of dip or sauce at parties, so I am first in line for the warm or hot appetizers. I have one small slow cooker but I might need to buy a few more over the next year or so for parties or gatherings at my house. This is similar to the one I have: Crock Pot SCR250-POLKA 2-1/2-Quart Slow Cooker, Polka Dot Pattern I would love a polka dot crockpot! Mine is plain white but it works!
