This is one of my very first Freezer Cooking recipes that I ever tried.

Everyone loved these, including my youngest girls who don't like olives. They are included to add flavor and a little color (my standard answer, but it's true!)...

Cheesy, meaty, tasty, a bit creamy...and the toasted bun gives an extra bit of crunch. I sprinkled a little shredded cheddar on top before putting them under the broiler and they were eaten like sloppy joes.
