    moparmotion's Note:

    This is one of my favorite recipes. It's very easy to adapt to your own tastes. I found the recipe on the back of a package of chard seeds I purchased years ago. I have changed the recipe here and there, as it originally called for lamb and no one in my family likes it. I hope you enjoy it. it takes some work, but it is the most delicious entree I've ever cooked! *Note: you can substitute yogurt for the sour cream for a lighter meal, the change is not noticeable in the overall meal*

      I've been making this for years. Sometimes I add golden raisons and a pinch of ground cloves to the meat mixture and top with tomato sauce. Thanks
