Good but, missing something. I did use cream instead of half and half.

I have made this a few times, and we enjoy the recipe as is. Very comforting type food. It's great for Sundays, as it is ready soon after arriving home from church. I typically use smoked brats or even keilbasa. That way I don't have to worry if the meat is cooked through or not. Also I would note that a 5 qt. slow cooker is a little large (try a 3 or 4 qt) and that this really only serves 4, at least as a main dish.

Made this for DH, very easy to put together. I used light half and half cream. Was told that this was good but needed more flavoring all around, so will use more seasonings next time. As I was slicing my brats, the casings were coming off and I ended up just crumbling them. Worked fine as crumbled, just have to keep checking and breaking the chunks up as it cooks. Or could have just browned first too.
