This looks like a delicious recipe, but I do not like the fact that you have to finish the casserole in the oven. In my opinion, the whole reason for using the slow cooker is to avoid using the oven! With that in mind, I may try this recipe because it does sound delicious.

Is the nutritional value for this recipe available?
