Because it packs a little kick and has an interesting and tasty mix of ingredients, this is the perfect potluck dish for fall—or any time. One of my husband's favorites, it's an Alaskan recipe I found in the early 1950's. —Kathy Crow, Cordova, Alaska

"Very yummy dish I left out the olives and added some cream cheese to tone down the BBQ . I'm not a BBQ fan but this was really good!"

"I've been cooking for over 50 years and this is only the second recipe I've made that was completely inedible! There have been recipes we didn't really care for, but this one was the absolutely worst ever! I was surprised because the list of ingredients sound like they'd balance each other out, but it didn't happen. Yuk - guess I'll put it outside for the coyotes - they'll eat anything. Sorry, but this recipe was a complete and total waste of ingredients and time! Bleh! I'm thinking some very hungry Alaskan trapper came in after a very long cold day, threw everything he got his hands on into a pot, and was so hungry he ate the result no matter how it tasted. For us this is not a repeat recipe - if I could I'd give it no stars."

"Absolutely delicious and relatively inexpensive...this casserole has become a staple for my family. I substitute ground turkey for the hamburger, which makes it even healthier."

"The unique ingredients in this recipe intrigued me. I did leave out the olives, though, as I don't like them. Other than that, we all enjoyed it. My 3 year old daughter, normally reluctant to try anything new, wolfed it down in seconds, then asked for seconds and thirds. Extremely unusual for her!"
