CHALLENGE: Is This Maine’s Best Slow Cooker Recipe?
Maine's 'Best Slow Cooker Recipe" involves seafood, which seems typical of a Maine dish. However, the dish includes an unusual twist that isn't so much associated with Maine. The dish is called "Italian Shrimp 'n' Pasta" and is described as, "a bit of classic shrimp Creole, but it has a surprise Italian twist."
Judging by the picture the recipe includes rice, shrimp, pork or chicken, celery, green peppers in some sort of tomato sauce.
The recipe was submitted to the website by a Mainer, Karen Edwards of Sanford, Maine and I don't think the point of this list is to reflect foods of your state put together into a slow cooker recipe. But, damnit, it should.
So this leads me to, what are the best slow cooker recipes that include famous Maine foods- potatoes, lobster, blueberries, maple syrup, etc.?
Here's a few ideas:
