I made this for my husband and son. I added homemade biscuits to complete the meal. They said "this is really good." That sums it up. I always say a recipe is a guideline. Here is my guideline add or subtract as you see fit. Enjoy the art of cooking! Every dish is a creation. You can prepare this the night before and turn it on in the morning before you leave.
