This is a recipe taken from my mother in law Colleen, who is amazing cook. I have tweaked it a bit, only because we don't eat beef. You can use any ground meat of your choice, i use a ground chicken and ground pork combo.

    Cover in tin foil and place in preheated oven for 30 minutes.
    Remove and top with cheese.
