Recipe by elizallan9897

This is the recipe from the Alpha-Bakery Gold Medal cookbook. Simple dinner that actually taste a lot better then it looks on paper. This was one of my favorites growing up and was sad to not see it on this site, so I'm changing that!

This was a favorite when my son's were growing up. Nice to see my tastes haven't changed all that much. I made it with ground turkey and skipped the crust. But I remember my boys loving the crust. A simple recipe and a bit different because of the pickles. They add a nice flavor and a little crunch.
