MY REVIEW
Reviewed Feb. 21, 2014

Very good, was enough for two meals for my husband and I. I did not use the white gravy mix, nor the bacon bits but next time I might use 2 brown gravy mix to make it a bit thicker

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Feb. 17, 2014

Both of the gravy mixes have huge amounts of salt in them. Make your own or, alternatively, use only one of them. Frankly, the corn, the corn bread/muffin mix and the bacon bits ALL contain salt too. 1,345 mg. of sodium PER SERVING of this casserole is OUTRAGEOUS!

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jan. 24, 2012

My husband really enjoyed this and I made a few changes to make it healthier. I did not use sausage, but a little more lean beef, I also did not use the gravy on top at the end - it was perfect without this addition. I did add some seasoning to spice it up a bit and paired it with a large salad and carrots. Great!

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jan. 3, 2012

Very Good! My family rated it as a "keeper". I didn't have an envelope of country gravy so I searched "country gravy recipe" on-line and found a recipe that worked great.
