There are just some dishes that once you have tasted the first bite, take you back to childhood in a snap. My Grandfather would use a combination of breakfast sausage and ground beef while my mom always used a full pound of ground beef. Either way, this is a wonderful dish. It would surprise me to hear if anyone had any leftover for lunch the next day.
