This was OK for us. I made exactly as written and everyone ate it but no one went back for seconds. I also added a good bit of pepper to the mixture. Made for Fall PAC 2012

We had mixed reviews in our family. My DH loved it and ate 3 helpings. I thought it was only 'so-so'. I added about 1 teaspoon of black pepper because I knew he wouldn't eat it if it were bland. Made for Fall PAC 2012.
