Crockpot Low Country Boil

 

 A summer classic with the convenience of the crockpot

 

Crockpot Low Country Boil - FamilyFreshMeals.com Fun Summer Meal 5

 

Nothing says summer like  a  Low Country Boil. It has to be one of the most fun meals to eat.  The combo of corn, shrimp, potatoes and sausage  are unlike any other.

 

You should have seen the girls’ faces when I started dumping the food onto the newspaper covered table. “Mommy!!!! What you are doing?!!!”  

 

The “cool factor” of being able to eat with our hands, off of newspaper,  really enticed the girls to give this new recipe a try.  Score!

 

This Crockpot Low Country Boil is a perfect recipe to make for a group of friends this summer.  So grab some newspaper, shrimp sauce , lemons, and have a blast!

 

NOTE: You will need a 6-7 quart crockpot for this recipe. I used a 6 quart and it was filled to the brim!

    This recipe looks awesome, I can wait to try it! I just recently became a follower and I’ve enjoyed all the recipes I’ve tried so far, thanks!

    • Thanks Natalie! That comment made my morning :) XO

      • Corey – it’s just me and my husband (both senior citizens) and this makes WAY too much for us. Any chance of cutting it in half or even in third with appropriate directions?

        • Could you just half the recipe and reduce the time a little. So for steps 4 & 5 ( 4. Cover the crockpot and cook on Low heat setting 4-5 hours.

          5. Add sausage and corn, cover and cook 2 hours longer.) I would cook on low for 4 hours and then for step 5, cook fro 1.5 hours. I would keep the last step the same to insure the sausage and shrimp heat through. I hope that helps!

  2. I can’t wait to try this. We are having company from the south, this summer. I think this will be a perfect meal for when they are here!

  3. Yum! Your boil looks amazing!! I can see eating this dish while being at Cape Cod! I love it!

    Corey, I really love your site. John and I will be this one! He’s a sausage-lover and my penchant is for seafood! Patty & John from Marengo, IL

    Im new to this site/blogging but since my parents are from New Orleans, I saw this, it caught my attention! My dad does this from time to time and we throw in all kinds of stuff! Thanks for the post.

  6. Dianna McGee says:

    I was so excited to see this one, it’ in my crock pot right now!!! Growing up we made this when we went camping, now I can have it anytime I want! Can’t wait for 6 pm to come today! Thanks again Chef Corey, love, love, love your ideas!!!!

  7. I made TWO crockpots full of this yesterday for a birthday party and it was amazing! Everyone loved it!

  8. Have you ever added snow crab to this? My DD’s go crazy for snow crab legs. I’d love to do this for them. Looks so yummy!

  9. Do you think this would work with clams and mussels as well? How about some lobsters? My BF loves a seafood boil and I can’t wait to try this once it gets warmer!

  10. I made this today and blogged about it as part of my Spring Cleaning New Recipe Challenge. It was awesome! I love seafood boil potatoes and corn and loved the malty-ness that beer added to the boil broth. I served the strained broth with French bread for dipping. Everyone in my family loved it…especially my three-year-old son. I really liked the addition of sausage, as well.

  11. Just made this yesterday. So easy, fresh and healthy. I really enjoyed it! I wanted something light and summery and this fit the bill.

  12. I would love to try this, but we don’t like kielbasa. What could I substitute, any suggestions?
