Not too many people have heard of this dish. I wonder if it's a Northern recipe (I grew up in Wisconsin). But this is a childhood favorite. Whenever I make it, I call my brother (now 26) and brag about what I'm having for dinner.

I have made this for years..wonderful quick and easy comfort food. Though we use the veggies just as a side dish

I'd heard of this but, had never made it. My daughter had some at a sleepover last weekend. She came home and asked that I make it....soon. It was really good and the kids wiped it out in a flash. Next time I'll have to double it. Good. Simple. Cheap. Yummy. Thanks.
