I got this recipe from my Aunt when I was a teen and have made these lip-smacking miniature loaves many times. My husband and three children count this main dish among their favorites. The recipe is also great for company, since it's easily doubled or tripled. —Kathy Bowron, Cocolalla, Idaho

My husband and I loved this recipe, it was great. Will try it with a little bit less of the sauce. Will definitely make these again.
