This recipe has been a family favorite for years. It's easy to prepare and perfect for a busy schedule. I've also made this recipe with salmon - substituting two cans for the ground beef and adding 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice. It's great!
"My grandsons tried these savory morsels for the first time as youngsters and loved them," reveals Helen McFadden of Sierra Vista, Arizona. "Though they're all grown up now, the boys still request the squares - and I'm happy to comply!"

"When we have baked potatoes for dinner, I often bake a few extra to use for this hearty breakfast," writes Linda Wakefield from her home in Mulino, Oregon. "This recipe is so versatile that you can always use up whatever leftovers you have on hand."
I especially like to make this breakfast dish when we have weekend guests. I fix it the night before, and the next morning I can sit, eat and enjoy their company. People often think I spent hours preparing it.
Meet the Cook: Whenever I have company, I like to be able to just pop the food on the table. So this recipe's a real favorite of mine. I got it from a friend who made it for our church get-togethers.
My husband and I raised four children; today, we have seven grandchildren. In our small town, farmland surrounds us on three sides, and we face the Columbia River on the other.

Meet the Cook: No matter when I've made these - for breakfast, brunch or lunch - they have never failed. I have not had them fall once. I often get asked for the recipe. -Jean Ference, Sherwood Park, Alberta
My mother passed on her passion for cooking to me, my daughters and my grandchildren. One of my daughters shared this recipe with me after she made it for her first overnight guests after she was married.
