OMG it was so good!!!! My son (15mnths) was just shoveling it into his mouth. Although I didn't have all the ingredients at this time. Lets just hope it taste just as good next time with all the ingredients!!!!
Super easy and super good. I made this tonite as I had leftover turkey that needed to be used. Didn't feel like the regular same old same old so checked out Derf recipe list and this is it. This came together so easy. I did make some changes in that I used homemade biscuits and dented them to fit into cups. DH loved and and again asked is this a recipe from zaar again? OF COURSE! He was very pleased. Thank you for another keeper.
Was VERY tasty, true! Reminds me of comfort food when little too! LOVE presentaion with muffin tin, I reckon if made this recipe...is always a win!
