Very yummy! I omitted the onions, because I don't like them. :) Whole family loved it.

Very easy to prepare. Delicious! There are so many things you could do to this recipe. Adding yellow or orange peppers maybe some thin sliced red onion. Try velveeta cheese instead of slice american. Thank you for sharing this recipe! A+
