I am always looking for new crockpot recipes to take to the race track. I thought this sounded interesting. I didn't add the green pepper as we don't add that to cheeseburgers. I also doubled the ketchup, mustard and dill relish as others suggested. I followed the rest of the recipe as written. I cooked it all on the stove and then put it in the crockpot for two hours. We enjoyed them.
My husband really liked these. I did double the ketchup, mustard, and pickle relish. I browned the hamburger on the stove with the onion, then put it in the crockpot for 3 hours. Thanks for a great recipe!
Very yummy. Double the ketchup,mustard,pickle and milk. Only need to cook on low for 3 hours as it was cooked meat already and felt 3 hours was enough time to blend flavors. Thanks for an easy dinner night!
