    laurenpie's Note:

    Stuffed with seasoned ground beef, rice, cheese and eggs. Easier because you skip the blanching required in most recipes. I actually use double the fresh garlic listed below, and it's REALLY yummy. If you're not a garlic fanatic, or aren't overly concerned about meeting up with any vampires soon, feel free to leave it out!
