"Good, easy recipe. Only additions I made were adding a sliced green onion and a sprinkle of Mrs Dash along with the pepper."

"I thought this was super easy and tasted great. I must have had the tart apples, because it was a little too much apple taste for me. I used italian breadcrumbs and that overpowered everything. I had some extra filling and put it over the top before the gravy. That gave it more flavor - try that!"

"Very, very bland. The sauce was not very thick and the whole disk was not very appealing to the eye."

"Good. Like other reviews though it just needs a little something else to give it a bite. Going to try a tarter apple or shaper cheese next time."
