"This is an awesome recipe that I got from my coworker. It can be modified in many ways, including for the slow cooker. It's a simple meal of things you often already have on hand that really sticks to the bones, and it can also be a fun way to use up some leftovers."

I loved this recipe! This was a quick way to use left over mashed potatoes. My picky kids even cleared their plates!
