I've never made a casserole successfully in a crock pot/slow cooker, so I was leery to try this one.
I swapped bacon for ham, and parsley for dill, and didn't spend the time sauteeing the garlic, onion, and peppers. (It was Christmas Eve! Had to get to bed before Santa arrived!)
After reading a lot of the comments and reviews, we reduced the milk to 1/2 a cup, and only let it cook for 5 hours on low. (That was PLENTY!) While setting an alarm was a bummer, if we make it for a brunch, starting it when we get up at 5 is perfect timing.
SUCCESS! The kids ate it up, the husband said it was delish, and even I was happy with the taste and texture. I may make it with less tater tots next time, and more cheese! Definitely going to try the sausage or bacon version next time!
Thank you for sharing this! A new Christmas Morning tradition is born!
