So easy to make and tastes great! I added frozen corn and peas as well and it turned out fantastic! The best part is...no dishes!

Great recipe...if cooking in the oven I would place in a pan. My foil leaked! Tasted great..I used hamburger instead!

excellent and easy! perfect way to teach kids (while supervised) how to make their own easy meals! perfect for a quick meal served over rice!

THIS IS A GREAT FIRST NIGHT MEAL AFTER YOU HAVE SET UP YOUR CAMP SPOT. ALREADY MADE SO YOU JUST POP INTO THE COALS AND ENJOY WHEN DONE.

Easy and delicious! I made it for two and it worked great.

This was an easy after-work recipe. Very tasty. We only missed the gravy. Would have to make that on the side next time, otherwise really great.

I love it
