“This was something I came up with (experimental) to use hamburger in another way. Cooking for 2 and don’t want a lot of left-overs….even though I had some….put in freezer for another meal later. Getting tired of burgers....meatloaf....chili.....etc.....and something my husband might like. (which he did)....with ingredients I had on hand. Could propably serve with sour cream and/or salsa. Thought about using Taco Seasoning & salsa....but didn't think he would like it as well. (Next time, maybe.) This would probably fit in a pie pan. I used a foil cake pan (bought at Dollar Tree...(almost an 8” square pan)…throw away when empty....easy clean-up).”
