Crockpot Cheeseburgers - Recipe

I have had this recipe for quite some time but never tried it.

The boys would never eat anything mixed or creamy when they were younger and well, I admit to not wanting to hear the fussing/screaming at the dinner table so I simply never tired it.

Now that they are older they are into trying new meals and asking for different foods to eat.

Such a lovely change of pace that is quite welcomed.

I made the meal up before I left to pick up the kiddos and could not wait to have some for dinner, it smelled so good.

The boys were starving when we finally arrived back home after school and haircuts.

Nate was the first one to give it a try, he was a bit unsure because of the way it looked but once he tried it that was a different story. He said it was full of flavor, tasted wonderful and when were we eating. Spencer was next and he told me that he needed a full plate to try because a taste was not enough. Lol..

Final result: A thumbs up from everyone. Great flavor, cheesy and warms you up on a cold night. I served it with No-Yolk noodles but this would be killer served on a hamburger bun.
