READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by John Somers

Can't remember where I got this but I've been doing it for years. Do it once, and get ready to do doubles. It's usually the first thing to go.

This tasted great and was quick to fix. The ingredients are simple enough most people would have them on hand for a quick lunch or dinner.
