I found this on the internet and hope to give it a try for this Christmas. From Crazy about Crockpots! Vol. II by Penny E. Stone. Cook times are a guess.

Although I followed the ingredient list right on down, I did prepare it in a slightly different way since I started it all much later in the day than I'd intended! I brought it to a boil on the stove top & finished preparing it, then transferred it to the crock pot on low to keep it warm for New Year's Eve! Worked out just fine, & we were thoroughly satisfied with the comforting flavor & aroma! Will be keeping this recipe around! [Made & reviewed in Bargain Basement tag]
