Here’s a fun game day main dish or just for an every day dinner for football fans.

It has the addition of carrots to add just a little bit more of a nutritious punch. You can also shred vegetables like zucchini and add them if you’d like. Try the recipe in the ad (circa 1950s) if you’re feeling adventurous, otherwise, I recommend the updated version below.
