Excellent. My wife went overboard on this. Doubled the recipe. Used 90% ground beef. Fried a large onion with the beef. Added a bag of frozen mixed vegetables, frozen baby carrots, can of cream of mushroom soup, mixed in 8 oz. of shredded cheddar, 2 Tb. worcestershire sauce, another bag of grated cheese on top.Baked 'till browned.

I made this last night, and it will definitely be in our regular meal plans. The only change I made was instead of using shredded cheese, I topped it with Cheddar flavored French fried onions, since that's what I had on hand. Thanks for sharing this recipe, it is a keeper!

Good recipe! I made it a little lower in calories, lower in fat, and quicker to make simply by using cubed turkey ham, which requires no pre-cooking, instead of ground beef. With this, it has 210 calories, 11 grams fat, 18 grams carbs, and 10 grams protein. (For even fewer calories, use 2% milk and fat-free cheese!) But it's good either way!
