My 4 and 2 year olds ATE this up! I didn't make them as cakes, just on the skillet and stuffed it into yellow bell peppers (for myself). YUM!

If ingredients are all still frozen, just put it all on the skillet and use the spatula to gradually break the beef/turkey apart. You won't get cakes that way, but it still tastes great!
