"I learned this recipe from a family friend and instead of two lbs of ground beef,try 1 lb of ground beef and 1 tube of Jimmie Dean Sausage (I use Sage but you can whatever suits your family), I promise you won't be sorry!!"

"I first made this many years ago for a large family gathering. It was in a sample Reminisce magazine I got in the mail. It is so good; everyone raves about it and yet it is not at all difficult to make. A real winner."
