This was a winner at my house! I have never made a dish that pleased all of them - but this one did! (I left out the green pepper.) I thought the bread would be soggy, but NO - not at all! The meat mix was more like a thick paste on top. It was easy to make and it sure is delicious! I reheated the leftowvers at 350 degrees for about 15 minutes and it was perfect! Thanks for sharing your recipe Martini Guy!
This has long been a standby in my house! I also make it without the peppers. I sometimes substitute frozen garlic bread and just omit the butter. Excellent recipe.
