I have three slow cookers. This beauty the hubster got me for Mothers day last year. I love it. Unlike other slow cookers, you can put the insert in the oven. It is perfect for all kinds of casserole type meals.  I also have a 4 quart round cooker and a smaller one I use for warm dips and such.

Slow Cookers have gotten a bad rap in the past, but they are coming back into style and boy are there some yummy recipes you can make in them. I love that you can practically set it and forget it.

Which brings me to this recipe. You make the filling in the slow cooker then you pour the topping on and put it in the oven to cook and brown nicely.  All you need is a side salad and dinner is served.
