This recipe is wonderful. It taste like home. I am from Dululth, MN and we grew up on this food!!!
I love it!!!!! We made ours a little different, but this is great!
We made ours like a sloppy Joe with Endive and escerole, fennel seel and garlic. Ground Veal along with Hot italian sausage and ground pork. Amazing how we have different ingrediants and it taste so much alike. Melt in your mouth!!!!

I am also from the iron range and grew up on this my grandma makes this slightly different but this is the most delicious thing you'll ever try you can put it on so many things or just eat it plain. Just this week I make breakfast potatoes with basted eggs and then topped that with South American and Mexican shredded cheese it was delicious!
