“Two of my hubby's friends were visiting and I was unprepared for dinner. I didn't have much in the fridge and had no time to run to the store. So I decided to whip up a tasty casserole, considering you can put almost anything into one. It was a big hit. Everybody LOVED it & there wasn't a bite to spare! It was manly enough for them, yet enjoyable for kids too.”
