Very, very tastee. I didnt follow the instructions completely though. I browned my hamburger and sausage with the onions first and drained it. Then put everything together. I figured it would be greasy otherwise and I try to cut fat whereever I can. Thank you for the great recipe both my daughters loved it and thats very rare in my house.

Loved it. This is the EASY version of our traditional rice dressing. Kids had 3rds! Hubby doctored his up with peppers, as he does with everything...he's a Louisiana Hot Sauce guy! I have added this to my stash of favorites! Thanks for sharing your recipe.
