“I cannot remember where this recipe came from, but it couldn't be easier to throw together for dinner on a hectic weekday. I like to add some spices to mine, and next time I intend to toss in some chopped onions and green peppers (I considered jalepenos as well). Tell your kids it's a hamburger and cheese tots all-in-one.”
