"Can I use sweet potatoes instead?"

MY REVIEW

"This is a wonderful dish for a main meal or a side. @cwbuff2- If you doubled the recipe, you should have doubled the baking dishes. That will ensure that everything is baked PROPERLY."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 27, 2014

"I have made this many times and it always bakes up tasty. cwbuff22, why did you rate a recipe low when you didn't follow the directions? You don't know why you doubled it, baked, and then gave a low rating. No wonder it wasn't cooked in the center. Make it as prescribed and then rate it!"

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 7, 2014

"I don't know why, but I doubled the ingredients like a previous poster, and it was not cooked in the center when I took it out. I thought baking it 1 hr would be enough, but it still didn't get finished even when I put it back in the oven for another 15 min. We finally had to finish our individual portions in the microwave because everybody was hungry and tired of waiting. I had taken the hash browns out the night before, so they were defrosted. Also, I think perhaps the hash browns would taste better if they were browned first - they were still kind of raw tasting. I have other similar recipes which are fine, so I will not try this one again."
