Well, it's time for another Dinner and a Movie segment. Tonight's movie is a clip of ventriloquist Terry Fator, and Kermit the frog. It's rated G. I hope you enjoy!

What better to follow a ventriloquist than something cheezy? For tonight's dinner, serve up a helping of Crockpot Cheeseburgers although I must disclose, these don't have to go into the crockpot, rather it can be a one-pot meal.
1 1/2 lbs. lean ground beef
1/8 tsp ground black pepper
8 oz. Velveeta cheese, cubed
2 TBSP milk
1/2 C chopped onion
1 lg garlic clove, minced
8 hamburger buns
your favorite condiments for hamburgers--pickles, mustard, ketchup, sliced tomatoes etc.

In a large skillet, over medium heat, cook ground beef w/ minced garlic and onion. Drain off excess fat and transfer to a 3 1/2 - 5 quart crockpot. Add cheese and milk. Cover and cook on LOW for 5 - 7 hours. (My crockpot doesn't cook low enough for this small amount of food that's already pre-cooked, so I have to watch it.) Serve over buns w/ condiments.
NOTE: to use as a one-pot meal, cook beef, garlic, and onion, drain off excess fat. Turn heat to low. Add cheese and milk. Warm until cheese is melted.
