"My husband and I liked it but the kids didn't ."
"This recipe gets 5 stars for three reasons: easy of the wallet, quick to make and my fessy veggie eating daughter had two helpings. I did add a 1/4 cup of prepared mustard in at the time with the ketchup and next time I make it, I will cut the brown sugar to a heavy 1/3 cup but not the full 1/2 cup. It's in my menu planner for three weeks to make again."
"Cary, I too have been enjoying this recipe since i was a young feller when mom served it up often. She tells me that the recipe came from an old Boy Scout cookbook and i have no reason to doubt mom.I recieve requests for this at every pot luck dinner. Phil Young, Vermont"
