I'm going to try this tonight but instead of putting the drummers in the slow cooker for the entire cooking time (I understand its a slow cooker recipe but it needs some tweaking) I'm going to bake them first and get them crispy then toss em' in the vat to soak up the saucy goodness... I'll let you know how it turns out.
