This is a recipe that my sister and I always begged my mother to make. It was our favorite and now it is my children's favorite, too. Very basic ingredients combine for a wonderful and tasty dish.

We just finished eating this recipe! It turned out very well here. We did make a few substitutions simply due to a lack of the exact ingredigents. We used ground turkey instead of ground beef. Plus, at the last minute, we noticed that we were out of onions! So, we just nixed that ingredient. Everything turned out great nevertheless. We did spice things up with salt, pepper and garlic powder. I can see how this might be a bit bland otherwise. But, overall, a nice piece of comfort food perfect for a chilly autumn night!


My whole family liked this recipe very much. I am definently going to make this one agian.


This was ok. The potatoes never did reaily get fully cooked. The taste was kinda bland. I had to add more seasoning. My husband and 16 month old daughter liked it. Next time "IF" I make it I will cook the potatoes before adding them.
