This was delicious tasting! My only complaint was that since it was created in a slow cooker, the potatoes and cheese didn't get that crusty goodness that one gets when baking it in the oven. However the leftovers were placed in a baking dish to be re-heated in the oven. I also added some crispy bacon as well. made to go with left over ham. Thanks for sharing!
