"Just fair. Omitted the cornflakes & butter. Very sweet. Not sure what flavor the recipe was going for.

"The flavors didn't mix.. you had a hashbrown casserole on the bottom, with a sweet meat mixture on the top.. i liked all the layers separately, but they just didn't go together. The meat needs to be spicier or something. Not quite sure what would fix this."

"Too sweet. I lived in New Orleans for 5 years. Not much "Creole" about this. My husband is not a picky eater but he could not even finish his portion. 85% potato; 15% meat. And the onions should have been sauteed with the beef -- too hard.

I would rate this 0 stars, if I had that option."

"Excellent! I added 2 lbs. of meat, and changed the potatoes to O'brien style. I also added adobe sauce to the ketchup for a little kick."

"Instead of using Cornflakes I used French's Fried Onions and I think next time I would cook up the onions before I add them to the potatoes. Pretty good I would make this again."
