    Made this last night. Cut recipe in half for just the two of us. Baked in the oven @350 for about 35-40 minutes. Very easy recipe but definitely missing something. If I make again with add additional herbs or a different cheese.

    The ingredients look great, but how late do you stay up or how early do you get up in order to cook it 6-7 hours and serve it for brunch? I have never understood overnight slow cooker recipes. I realize some have timers on them, but I am not comfortable putting ingredients in a slow cooker and let it sit for hours until it starts cooking. What am I missing?

    On a low carb diet and used shredded turnips and 1/2 'n 1/2. When turnips are cooked this way it is almost impossible to know they are not potatoes. Salt and pepper the turnips first and add about a tbl of melted butter.

    Changed the recipe a bit. I accidentally doubled the cheese and baked it at 350 degrees for about 30 minutes til the knife comes out clean. Also added red pepper. Delicious!
