I am pretty sure that I have shared tales of my picky crew with you. Finding something that everyone will love is just about a miracle. Casseroles are so easy to make but pretty tough to please the whole family. This casserole though... Oh my goodness! Chad and I were literally standing over the slow cooker eating it with a fork. We just couldn't get enough and I know you are going to love it too.
