"I was lacking quite a few of the ingredients so I switched up the recipe quite a bit.

I didn't have yogurt so I sprinkled mild cheddar cheese and I used regular ground beef 80% lean. This is very far from the original recipe, but the concept was what I was after. The final product, even after so much switching around, wasn't bad. It is very filling. It took an hour to cook my large sweet potatoes and in the end my dad, my mom, and I split one potato into quarters and I couldn't even finish my share. (We're not big eaters to start with). On the whole my version wasn't bad, but my version isn't something I'd really go out of my way to have again. Maybe when I have the right ingredients I'll try it again. This was just an alternative to the hamburger helper my dad intending on making and I'm getting to really hate hamburger helper!"
