Favorite Food Fridays #4

posted in food on by

This one is from http://www.kraftrecipes.com. I usually add a few things like garlic powder and some 3 onion dip mix from Epicure and some mozzarella cheese. I also make a quadruple batch and freeze each batch for future meals, making it nice on busy days when I don’t have time to make a meal.
