  1. I made this for the first time last night. My husband LOVED it!!! He said we’ve been together 23 years and you’ve just now made this. So needless to say I’ll be making this again. The only thing I did differently was add sliced black olives. Thanks for sharing!!!

  2. sounds so good I am going to try this out tomorrow night Thank you

  3. I just used one lb of ground beef and 1 box of corn muffin mix since it was just the 2 of us - AND I added shredded cheese and sliced green olives on top as well. Delicious!
