10 Easter Dishes to Make With Your Slow Cooker

Take a break from your Instant Pot and get back to basics with these easy dishes that are perfect for Easter.

Slow-Cooker Green Beans

Crockpot Funeral Potatoes
This hearty cheese-and-potato side dish is sure to please a crowd - even the kids. Want to mix it up a bit? Just use any condensed "cream of" soup you wish, and pair with your choice of melted cheeses. We used Ore-Ida potatoes and Campbell’s soup, but any brand of frozen potatoes or condensed soup will work just fine. These potatoes make a great side for hearty Easter entrées like lamb, brisket, and ham.
This easy slow-cooker cheesecake gets its irresistible flavor from an amaretti cookie crust and almond extract. Mixing fat-free cream cheese with reduced-fat cream cheese cuts fat and calories without sacrificing taste. Be sure to allow six hours to chill before serving.

Glazed Carrots with Green Olives
You can prepare these carrots through step 2 up to 1 hour before serving. If you don't have an electric slow-cooker, use a heat diffuser or flame tamer over a stovetop burner. To pit olives, gently tap each one with a wooden mallet or the flat side of a knife blade; halve olive and pull out pit.
