Notes

If you have the time, and get up early enough, this is a great lunch. The recipe is from a Slow Cooker booklet by Pillsbury. This would also taste great on ciabatta bread, and maybe add some alfalfa sprouts or other greens.

I made this over the weekend for my family and it was a huge hit. Thanks for sharing the recipe!
