MY REVIEW
Reviewed Feb. 21, 2014

"Cooked these in the slow cooker, then I just baked some chicken breast to go with them. Was a great easy dinner."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 24, 2013

"I made this to take to my work Christmas potluck and it went over very well. I used turkey bacon so it didn't crisp up as well and didn't have the extra "drippings" to add, but it still tasted good. I also used low-fat cream cheese and skim milk and I don't think you could tell the difference. Still very creamy and flavorful. I used the crock-pot baggies to line my pot, so clean up was a breeze! Will make this one again."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Nov. 28, 2013

"Didn't have time to make in the crockpot so tried them in the oven, nice option for a different side dish. My family is big on bacon so I added a little extra. Next time will add a little more milk to give it a creamier texture .Might also add some garlic or garlic salt."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Oct. 23, 2013

"Great recipe!! I didn't add the bacon; i'm not much of a bacon person. I think fried onions would also be good mixed in. I had it in the slow cooker for 5 hours and they turned out tender as can be! I will be making this for a side at Thanksgiving!"

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Oct. 23, 2013

"Fixed this yesterday and it was great. I mixed more milk in before cooking, since other reviewers stated that they got a little dry. Also only cooked for 5 hours and they were done. Will be having these again."
