I made these 2 ways - like the recipe and then adding shredded pot roast (i had as a left over). It's a terrific recipe!

Made them today and they were excellent. Added one other item, Sour Cream after they came out of the oven.
My son was talking about adding other items to mixture. I will make them just the way the recipe calls for.
