“Was using up bits & pieces in my larder yesterday and ended up making this SUPER YUMMY dish for dinner. Talk about delicious accidents! You could change this recipe up a hundred different ways, I reckon. Anyway, believe it or not, all the ingredients listed were leftovers / stuff kicking around that needed to be used up! This recipe will easily feed about 3 hungry people, and it's really inexpensive because very little meat is used (but it wasn't missed). Hope y'all give this a go!”
