"I cook for my husband and I in the slow cooker all the time. Not a waste at all! What are you wasting? I don't understand your comment."

"I have made MANY times since I first found this recipe!!! We LOVE it!!! I have done it double and 4X-I don't think I have EVER made something for just two !!! LOL What I do is use a small ham steak {1 to double and 2 to 4X} I cube it and then pan fry {with a T of butter} to crisp it up a bit. Then I dice and cook onions in the pan to get up all the browned up goodness from the pan- this adds a nice smokey flavor. The little bit of butter helps to thicken the "sauce" with the flour as it cooks. We eat it like a chowder and it is even better the next day!!!"

"Hi Alice, According to my Taste of Home Cassaroles & Slow Cooker cookbook converter, which is pretty darned accurate, I would bake this dish at 350 degrees for 40 minutes."

"Ummm, yummy! I used a whole 16 pkg of ham cubes, 1# pkg of Velveeta and the whole can of soup to eliminate waste and this dish was delicious. The big surprise came when my husband, heating up the leftovers, added a carton of sour cream and 1 C. of peas. That made this dish absolutely mouth-watering! We will definately make this again - next time using sour cream in place of the milk and adding the peas for nutrition and color."
