This recipe was great! I was a little skeptical of the mayo as well but it gave it a very creamy texture. I used everything fat-free and it was still wonderful!

Very tasty dish and so easy to make. The only change I made was to use ground turkey vs. the beef. Served with a nice Greek salad. Made for the Best of 2014 tag game.

This was really good! It was quick and easy as described too. I was also skeptical of the mayo but decided to try it since the other reviews seemed to like it. Thanks for sharing. Made for What's on the Menu tag.
