This was one of the first recipes I made as a newlywed (a long time ago). I still have it so it must be good!

Simple and delicious. I made turkey for myself and used hamburger for my menfolk. I found I didn't have any pimentos, but it all tasted wonderful. I added some jalapeno slices and enjoyed it all very much. Thanks for posting!
