wyomingdiva just shared this recipe with me.
I am going to use our left over steak, burger, Hot Italian sausage and bacon in this for the meat.
If you do not have a crock pot but I would suggest picking one up....you can pick them up pretty cheap at the thrift stores is money is tight.
Cooking is quite simple when you just put everyting in the crock pot and walk away
But you could do this on the cook top as well if that is what you prefer.
