So I'll start by saying that I got this recipe from the show "Cooking with Dog" that can be found on Youtube. (It's pretty funny and is definitely worth a look)

So I started making this recipe, but have made a few modifications over time! Hope you love it!!

The recipe is for 2-3 servings

    The original recipe doesn't ask for extra vegetables, but I like to add some brocoli.
