Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
A Syrian/Lebanese dish that the Haddad/Crouse family make. Icer Crouse sent this recipe: "hamburger meat (chuck), pine nuts, pecans, walnuts, sausage, garlic, cracked wheat, onion, olive oil salt & pepper, bake 350 make sure u grind the meat and sausage. Hell this is to much typing call momma or just come by." Best of luck in making it! Serve with Tabbouleh Salad, which consists primarily of bulgur wheat, parsley, mint, tomato, spring onion and other chopped fresh herbs with lemon juice.
