2 cans diced tomatoes
2 cans tomato sauce
1 can tomato paste
1 pound sweet Italian sausage (crumbled)
1 pound hamburger (crumbled)
1 package mushrooms (I used the large package)
2 large onions (chopped)
Several cloves of smoked garlic to taste
1 6 oz package of Parmesan cheese
Oregano (to taste)
Basil (to taste)
Sugar (to taste)
Salt and Pepper (to taste)
Get crockpot ready by setting temp to low. I used a 4 qt, but a 5 qt would work as well. In pot place diced tomatoes, tomato sauce and tomato paste. I used two pans and cooked the mushrooms, onions and garlic in one and sausage and hamburger in another. While the stuff is browning I added oregano, basil, salt, pepper and sugar in the pot. Once the hamburger and the sausage frying are browned drain and add to pot. Add browned mushrooms, onions and garlic to the pot as well. Add the Parmesan cheese and mix everything together and taste. This is the point to add more of anything seasoning wise you need. Cover and cook 8-10 hours. If you are around while cooking recheck taste about halfway through cook time and add seasoning as needed.

You don’t need to precook the bacon but doing so will leave you with delicious crispy bits of bacon at the end of cooking.
Remember most slow cookers run at different temperatures so you may find yours could cook sooner than 8 hours even on low.
You can swap the bacon out for something like sliced pork sausages if you’re looking for an alternative to bacon. You could even try cooking the dish with pulled pork or shredded chicken.
I made use of hash brown patties but you can also use shredded, it will work just as well.
There won’t be much of a difference between the two so don’t stress too much about trying to choose which variety to buy.
You can add some sliced red bell peppers to this dish by swapping the tomatoes with them or just having it as an extra ingredient.
If you love things cheesy, then don’t be afraid to double that cheese. You could also experiment with stronger flavors of cheese to get a much different tasting dish.
