Crockpot Cheeseburgers – sloppy joe style cheeseburgers cooked in the slow cooker. Serve it on buns with all your favorite burger fixins for an easy weeknight dinner the whole family will love!
Happy Wednesday guys! We made it halfway through the week!
In case I forgot to mention it, I am currently obsessed with bread and butter pickles and Velveeta cheese slices right now.
I mean, if that’s not the epitome of sophisticated taste buds, I don’t know what is.
But every morning, I have 2 eggs with a slice of Velveeta cheese and every afternoon, I have one of my burger salads with tons of pickles on it.
And more than once in the last month, we’ve had these Crockpot Cheeseburgers for dinner because Velveeta! And pickles! My two favorites in one easy dinner!
How To Make Crockpot Cheeseburgers!
Seriously, this recipe is so simple, so good, and the entire family loves it.
You just quickly brown some ground beef (you could definitely use turkey if you prefer!) and then transfer it to the crockpot, mix in some cheese, ketchup, and mustard, and let it cook for a few hours. The cheese melts and creates that texture that only Velveeta can make – you know what I’m talking about!
I like to serve it on buns, sloppy joe-style with one of those cheese slices (because you can never have enough cheese!) and a ton of pickles on top. Add tomatoes, lettuce, bacon, whatever your normal cheeseburger toppings are!
It is the perfect quick and easy dinner or it would be great for football parties. You could leave it in the slow cooker on warm so people could serve themselves as they get hungry. It is the perfect no fuss party option or easy dinner idea!

Crockpot Beer and Brown Sugar Kielbasa – probably my favorite slow cooker recipes! Kielbasa is cooked in beer, brown sugar, and sauerkraut until all the different flavors soak into the kielbasa and it becomes so tender and delicious. I serve it on buns and you can add the sauerkraut on top if you are into that sort of thing. I know this one sounds weird but you will make it over and over again after you try it!
Slow Cooker Sweet Pork Tacos with Cilantro Ranch Dressing – slow cooked pork in a sweet and spicy sauce that you shred and serve in tortillas (or you can do burrito bowls or salads!) with cheese and an easy homemade cilantro ranch dressing.
