“This was a real hit while I was on vacation looking for a hearty one pot wonder to satisfy several different age groups. I made one as directed below and another with blue cheese and cheddar. Even the kids loved the addition of the blue cheese. From Who wants a bun when you can have a cheeseburger baked in a flaky pie crust?”
