I've made this three different ways (with extra~lean gr. beef, gr. turkey, & gr. soy "burger") and my family raves about it each time. Try it with brown rice (instead of white), a salt~free table seasoning (instead of the salt & pepper), and a demerara sugar for a healthier (low~carb , no sodium, & unrefined sugar), truly tasty version.
Time consuming, but so delicious.
