I made this months ago and am barely getting around to posting the recipe, but it's a good one. This is one of those easy to throw together, tastes great and crowd-pleasing type of recipes. With only a few ingredients and short directions, you're sure to love it!
This dish is not only total comfort food, but you can switch up the flavor with all sorts of toppings. And you know how much I love toppings!
