  • Always brown ground beef & drain well. The leaner the meat, the better for crock/slow cooking. Sorry, I agree w/ omg123, it's a train wreck waiting to happen.

  • i dont know if i can answer all your questions, but this just sounds like a train wreck in a crock pot. there are several other recipes for this cassarole in other pages on this site that appear to be more logical.

  • I have never had one of my questions answered either. I would think yes to cook the beef for the grease but no since it may become hard. I would think the tots would come out mushy. Don't you??
