My most favorite dish I ever made. It was handed down from my mom who made it slightly different. My family begs me to make it. It is very easy to make and prep time is not long. One bite and you will be hooked.

I really liked this recipe. (Growing up, my mom always made this but used the celery soup version, which I love too.) Made as written, but reduced to a half recipe. Super yummy comfort food!

This was very good and the family really enjoyed it. I added some scallions to the ground beef and I used peas in place of the corn. The next time I will use peas and corn. Thanks for this recipe.
