"Made the recipe exactly as stated with the exception of putting in sage...neither I nor my husband care for it. I don't know what went wrong but it was so juicy I had to bake it uncovered (after the first 45 minutes covered) an additional 1 - 1.25 hours to firm it up some and brown. Even then it was still juicy. The flavor was good and my husband is quite a picky eater but will help eat the leftovers. It's currently tipped on a slant to get more of the juice out. It was quite an experience. Checked the recipe a couple of times and did exactly as it came off the internet. Go figure!!!!!"

"Use homemade bread that has no salt added, there is a lite Velveeta that will lower the sodium a little more; and you could just use fresh sliced mushrooms in place of the soup."
