These were really yummy and a nice twist on our usual meat and potatoes. We did half the meat, but they were still really, really good! They were also really easy; I did most of the prep work ahead of time then just threw them in the oven right before we ate.

This was great. Very flavorful. Very filling. Doubled the recipe, which worked great. Didn't use the onions, will try that next time. Was a little bit time consuming. This will be a family favorite. My nephew thought it would be gross, then he tried it and loved it.
