From frittatas to granola, your slow cooker can churn out almost anything. Except bread. Nope, you can't possibly make bread in a slow cooker…except you can. And it's just as delicious as a loaf that you'd pull hot from the oven. (Well, if you ever actually had the time to do that sort of thing.)
Of course, you still have to mix up your dough and knead it for a few minutes. We're not performing magic here, people. But once you get those simple steps out of the way, it's straight into the slow cooker for 2 to 4 hours, depending on your bread recipe. All told, you end up with a fresh, flavorful loaf for about 15 minutes of work and cleanup time. Definitely worth it, right?
Slow-cooker bread, folks. It's a thing, and you need to get on board now. Here are 6 tasty ways to do it.
