Great for Potluck or even Happy hour when you have food

MY REVIEW

I make this recipe often - sometimes as a main dish, but by reducing the amount of beef and liquid, I can turn it into a side dish for picnics as well.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Sep. 30, 2010

We love this and it's also a great way to recycle left over meat loaf. I make half the recipe for the 4 children when we are having chili.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jul. 10, 2010

I love this recipe. I usually cut the amount of ground beef in half and reduce the bouillon and water so it's more like a side dish than a main meal.
