MY REVIEW
Reviewed Feb. 28, 2012

"made this and was extremely blah, so I tweaked it a little. I added some worcerterershire sauce,egg, garlic powder,chopped red and green peppers, and some Japanese panko crumbs to the hamburger mix and then layered it like someone suggested. I put the carrots on the bottom then the potatoes, onions and then the hamburg patty. cooked it for the time stated and got some flavor. Still not excellen, but a good small dinner. Will make again, just not too soon."
