This sounded like a foolproof recipe, what could go wrong with brats and cheese? Since my slowcooker only has 2 settings, I decided to cook all the ingredients on low for 6 hours. I fully cooked the brats and used 1/2 italian and 1/2 hot italian brats. I drained them on paper towels to cut down on the grease. After cooking, the potatoes were not yet done, as they still had a hard-waxy texture. The dish was also rather salty, but that may be due to all the canned ingredients. The finished product was also very runny, I had been expecting more of a creamy soup, not a cheese broth. A can of cheese soup or maybe nacho cheese would have really helped. Additionally, there was just too much bratwurst in this recipe, I'd probably halve it. Lastly, I think that some roughly chopped kale would be excellent in this. I might try this again, but only with these changes.
