Easy-Peasy Pineapple Ham Slow Cooker Dinner Idea


If you’re feeling rushed for time this week (who isn’t!?) and need a really quick meal to throw together for the family — I’ve got you covered! This is the easiest, simplest slow cooker ham recipe — ever. It isn’t even a recipe, just a few ingredients tossed into the crock pot and cooked until they’re melded perfectly together into a hearty comforting meal that the family will love!

It starts with one of my favorite things from the Freezer section at Walmart — pre-packaged Smoked Spiral Ham Slices & Pieces. A package of this is like having leftover ham — without all of the work! Yum! And they’re pretty cheap too. I always grab a couple when they’re in stock.

Ham, Pineapple and veggies are combined in the slow cooker for a simple and comforting dinner.
Recipe type: Main
Serves: 4-6
  • 1½ - 2 lbs Smoked Spiral Ham Slices & Pieces
  • 8 Medium Potatoes, peeled and cut into large chunks
  • 1 bag Baby Carrots
  • 1 15 oz can Crushed Pineapple (do not drain)
  • ½ - 1 tsp Ground Cloves
  • Pepper to taste
  1. Place everything in the slow cooker.
  2. Pour one can of water over top.
  3. Put the lid on and cook on high for 5 hours or until veggies are tender.

We like to eat this with warmed King's Hawaiian Rolls. They taste so good dipped into the juice -- Mmm!

    YUM! I love stuff that I can just throw in my slow cooker and leave it until later. It makes life so much easier on days when I have a million and one things to do.

      Actually, now that I think about it, they’re in the middle section where the hams are — I guess that’s the cold foods section not the freezer section? I like to grab a few because it seems like they’re only in stock randomly!

      I use my slow cooker for everything :) Even whole hams! Thanks! I’m not so sure about the header but wanted a change, at least for the holidays. Someday I’ll decide what I really want it to look like!
