MY REVIEW
Reviewed Sep. 10, 2013

if I put the crockpot on warm(instead of low) do you think I could start this the night before and let it cook for 8 hours????

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Aug. 11, 2013

I took this to a church brunch today and didn't even get any because it went so quickly. People raved about it and even my picky six year old loved it! I cooked it for a little under three hours and it was cooked through and a little dark on the bottom so watch it closely towards the end of the cook time.

It went together quickly and smelled fantastic!

This got rave reviews from my family,but the bottom was almost burned after 4 hrs. I will go with 3 1/2 next time

MY REVIEW

Outstanding! Got rave reviews all the way around. As I was adding the cream cheese, it seemed like a bit much so I went a little less. Everyone went back for more and were disappointed to see that it was already gone.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Feb. 2, 2012

Made the other version for the oven once, and so I knew this would be good and save my oven for something else for the brunch I had planned! I was right!!! Our family really doesn't need that much (or any) cream cheese to make this good, but that's our tastes. I would never rate it less because of that.
