"This is my new favorite casserole recipe. Made it exactly like the recipe states and it was tasty and reheated beautifully for leftovers. I love the tator tots in the bottom of the pan, you get more potato flavor and they don't get soggy"

"This is quick and a favorite in my house! This also last a couple days for dinners. This helps me with coming home tired from work. Also has wiggle room to add your own vegetables or seasonings. ? 5? From me!"

"Definitely liked it, but will leave out the chopped broccoli from now on. Possibly substitute cauliflower or maybe carrots, but not the chopped broccoli."

"I've made this before and we all loved it! I am new to freezing foods - is this a "freeze-able" recipe?"

"I made this for a potluck. Not good. Bland, salty, and generally unhealthy."

"Made this for dinner last night and we all loved it, even our son who's not that fond of ground meat. I made one slight change. When I made my shopping list, I thought the recipe called for frozen broccoli cuts. I don't like the texture of those, so I bought a pound of fresh broccoli crowns instead, planning to cut them up and steam them before adding. When I realized my mistake, I just rough chopped the fresh broccoli, steamed it in the microwave for a few minutes and added it as directed. It turned out delicious. Definitely a keeper!"
