"Feed the Gang for less! You can definately stretch out these few basic ingredients to make a yummy one dish meal. I used the suggestion and used cream or onion & regular Cheddar cheese and it worked just fine. Also during browning of beef used a bit of cumin, chili pepper & steak seasoning. Husband took the leftovers to work the next day - and that's saying a lot! He's not a leftover guy :)"

"We has leftover meatloaf and I used it in the recipe in place of the ground beef. The kids didn't notice and all loved it. I will make it again. My husband loved this, too. Thanks!"

"This was a very nice flavorful dish. The only change I made was to use 1 1/2 cups grated sharp cheddar cheese. The bread crumb topping adds a nice touch. It is quick and easy to prepare on a busy day. The entire family enjoyed it. Served with cornbread. Will make it again."
