Easy little winter dinner for slow-cooker.

Top Review by KateL

Easy kid-friendly meal. Instead of processed cheese, I used 3 cups sharp white cheddar cheese, 1 1/2 cups swiss cheese-gruyere, and 1 1/2 cups smoked provolone (a combination simulating Provel processed cheese, but using premium ingredients). Because this was a crockpot meal, I scooped out portions. We had a hard time finding the cheese, and the special flavors of the cheeses were lost. So for this recipe, I would use orange cheddar cheese or cut up Velveeta, and not try to add a gourmet touch. I was glad that the recipe did not call for additional salt because the canned soup and the cheese gave it enough. I like to see my cheese, and know that each portion is getting its share, so I would not add the cheese to the crockpot, but put each dinner portion in a French Onion Soup bowl, sprinkle the cheese, and melt under the broiler or in the oven. Made for Please Review My Recipe tag game.
