Made this tonight for diner. My DD simply loved it. Must be a ketchup thing for kids. It did have a good flavor. It was great that is was quick to put together. I sauteed the beef with the onions and peppers together at the same time. Didn't find a need to do them separate. I used a red pepper cause I am not fond of green ones. I did add some salt and pepper and some garlic powder though. As well no way did I come close to adding 24 oz of ketchup. I may of put between 8 and 10 oz. only. I found that to be plenty and it added a really nice flavor. This actually made enough for at least 10 people. But that is okay because I froze the rest in containers for 2 and it will make great lunches. Silly me though forgot to add the breadcrumbs though, but I don't think it affected the taste in the end. It took about 30 minutes in the oven to bubble then added the cheese for another 15 minutes. I would definitely make this recipe again. Thanks for posting Bobtail.
Very, very good! Definitely a kid pleaser! 2 kids gave it "5 Stars" and 1 kid gave it "3 Stars", and I personally gave it "5 Stars too!" So super-easy...I thought that the breadcrumbs and cheese added at the end was the "icing on the cake", so to speak... I took your advice, Bobtail, and put in ketchup a little at a time -- ended up putting 10 oz. in. The kids loved the flavor and I loved the ease in making it! Thank you for sharing your friend's recipe! It's a keeper in my house.....;)
