"Since we're empty nesters, generally halve this dish. Make my own biscuits instead. J."

"This was very good! It reminded me of a "sloopy joe" my Mom used to make but she used sour cream instead of cream cheese. I followed the directions except for putting in some chili sauce along with the ketchup. I also added 2 tsp of yellow mustard for extra zip. I baked the biscuits right on top and they baked up nice and golden brown. Kids loved it, tasty fall meal."

"I did not use 2 lbs. of Ground beef. It would have been way too much. As for the remaining ingredients, I used as much as it called for. My entire family LOVED this! It was very creamy and tasteful. I baked the biscuits on a baking sheet instead of putting them on top of the meal to bake. Mine always come out soggy/underdone.

I will definitely make this again!"
