Expert Tips

It is important to cook the ground beef before adding it to the cooker. Because the beef is ground, there is a greater risk that bacteria may start to grow before the temperature inside the cooker gets high enough.

No coleslaw mix on hand? Substitute 4 1/2 cups shredded cabbage and one shredded carrot. If you own a food processor with a shredding attachment, this is a great time to use it.

Place squares of process American cheese over the top of the finished casserole, or sprinkle with shredded Cheddar cheese. Cover and let it stand a few minutes so the cheese melts. Kids will love it!
