Slow Cooker Cheeseburgers

I really wasn’t expecting these slow cooker cheeseburgers to be all that great. Would I get that great cheeseburger taste?  Would they leave me hankering for the real thing instead? I have to admit that I loved them! I thought they were great. Kind of like Sloppy Joes, but they taste just like cheeseburgers. On a cold day they hit the spot and then some. A little ketchup, a little mustard, and a few pickle slices and I was a happy guy!
Slow Cooker CheeseburgersSlow cooker cheeseburgers made for the perfect make-and-forget meal. I just tossed all the ingredients into my crockpot at lunch time and by dinner time everything was ready! Just warm some buns and you’ve got dinner!

I used ‘plain ole’ Velveeta for my cheeseburgers. For a change you can use Kraft’s Mexican- or Jalapeno-flavored Velveeta.
