Reviews for Beefy Au Gratin Potatoes
"The recipe was simple to follow as most crock pot recipes are. The finished product was tasted (evryone, all five of us) and given a proper buriel down the garbage disposal. Most families do not have food, time, or money to waste and with this recipe you will be wasting all three. As a home cook I have researched, developed, and cooked thousands of meals. I have raised 24 children and now have 14 grandchildren. Not once have I ever had such a complete flop that in no way could be saved. That is until now. I wish the person who came up with this idea, albeit a great idea in concept, all the best. I am sure they could not possibly come up with anything worse. Best of luck."
