This recipe completely filled my 3.5-quart crock pot.
This recipe was included in my freezer meal plan of main dishes when preparing for the birth of my fourth child. Read my update on how this recipe and the others turned out after freezing!
This recipe is wonderful! The recipe ingredients and instructions worked just perfectly, and the end result was a tasty dinner casserole. I have been disappointed with a lot of crock pot recipes I've tried in the past, but we all agreed that this one was yummy!!
It was also easy to make, served a lot of people, and didn't take too long to cook. The 3-4 hour cooking time makes it the perfect lunch to start before going away for the morning. We really enjoyed this dish! My rating: 10/10
