Supper on a Bread Slice

Recipe by Hey Jude

This is tasty, but not exactly diet food and lately I've made it with ground turkey, rather than beef. I like to make this when we're vacationing at our cabin in the woods. I found this years ago in a newspaper, don't remember which one, but it was sent in by a Jane Achterberg from Wisconsin.

Top Review by tarheelfan50 mom passed away a few years ago and I inherited her recipe box but this recipe was not in it. She used to make this often while we were going up....thanks so much for posting! I will be making this tonight and am hoping MY kids love it as much as my brothers and I did!
