    I made this tonight and must say it was delicious . I skipped the fries and pickle because I used more potatoes in it place of fries. It's a keeper , thanks for sharing it .

    It sounds good. But I'll have to find a way to vegetarianize it. I'm not, but my hubby is. But experimenting in the kitchen is always fun.

    This looks very "man-friendly". I think I will try it with lowfat milk and ground turkey. Thanks!
