    TheDancingCook's Note:

    These are similar to a sloppy joe or a cheeseburger and this recipe is written specifically to make ahead and freeze until you want them. Kid friendly, works great for busy weeknights served aside some french fries or tater tots. This recipe has been in my family for years; came from my Aunt Weezie out in Indiana.

      I omitted the pickles and used onion powder (very picky kids) but these were fantastic! I made them OAMC and they were great that way. A nice filling snack in a hurry. I've also made them up just adding the cheese to the other ingredients once they were cooked and letting it melt right in. These are great! Kids loved them. I loved them. Everyone I've ever fed them to has loved them! Thanks for the recipe.

      These are very good. I did substitute the cheese with Montery Jack.

      Very good blend of flavors. My only modification was subbing cheddar for muenster as that's what I had on hand. Did this for OAMC. I baked them for 25 min with the centers still quite cold. Probably just my oven, but I may increase the temp to 375 next time. Thanks for posting!
