My husband and I run a course for young men that aspire to become Navy SEALS. Guys come to our training camp for 2 weeks and I provide all the food and do all the cooking. This is one dish that they always ask for.It's not to time consuming and I just double the ingredents and throw it in the oven. I've even used instant mashed potatoes. You can check out our website.
