      I've been making this recipe for years. When I first started making it, I added about 1/4 cup BBQ sauce to give it a little sweetness and kick. You can freeze half if you're cooking for less than a crowd.

      This is good and easy to make. I followed the recipe as written other then I used onion powder intead of onions and added lots more pamesan cheese. I keep frozen cooked hamburger in my freezer so this made it even quicker to make. This was a good weeknight meal.

      How funny! I was reading this book called "The Cold Blue Blood" by David Handler. The main character is known for his American Chop Suey, which seems to be the exact same recipe you have given here! I just thought this was a funny coincidence!
