This is one of those “every once in a while” recipes because its not exactly healthy. BUT it is probably the best recipe I have and is a total crowd-pleaser! Make this for your family, your significant other, a dinner party, seriously make it for everyone you know! It’s slightly similar to Mississippi Roast but not so greasy (yeah, I said it). Serve it on rolls and melt the cheese under the broiler and dig in!


*Note that i use less ingredients than my mom’s original recipe, both are amazing I’m just lazy! But my mom’s version has way more flavor and mom’s always know best!*
