I love to cook – when I'm not being *pressured* into cooking. You know what I mean, kids nagging in your ear that they are starving, husbands complaining that you never cook anything that they like (even when they are the one that requested a particular dish for dinner) – I know you know what I'm talking about.
I also hate it when I draw a complete blank looking into my fridge and cabinets and can think of absolutely nothing to fix for dinner that will feed the testosterone in this house to the point where they are actually full and not coming back in an hour looking for another full-course meal to eat!
This is a sure fire hit in my household – it not only fills them up – its quick and inexpensive to prepare! Since its baked in the oven – there is no need for buns – and you can pair it with a delicious, healthy salad or your favorite steamed veggies for a well-rounded nutritious meal!
