Delicious and a nice change from other ground beef dishes. Could be my oven, but 70 minutes was a tad too long. The only other change I will make next time is to add more cheese. Lots more. Just personal preference. : ) Thank you, this was wonderful. I even made it gluten-free with my own bread. Kind of like an inside out cheeseburger. lol
