Reviews for Mexican Turkey Hash Brown Bake
"I loved this and my husband and son loved it. It was a bit much on the potatoes for me but not for my son and husband. Great weeknight dinner!"
"Very tasty!!! A little spicy, but not overboard."
"I made this for dinner last night. I <3 mexican food!!! This dish is way too spicy. I can't get my kids to eat it at all, and we eat a lot of things with quite a kick! With that said, I made a special lunch today. I scrambled an egg with some milk, then I added some of this hash brown bake from last night, with 1/2 a piece of american fat free cheese, mixed till it was melted and served it as a sandwich......It was SOOOOOOOOOOOO good. That was excellent, so I will make this again, but not for my kids. It was good eaten like this. It also seems to be way LESS spicy the next day as left overs. Thumbs up !!!!!!!!!! Try my variation next time you make this, you will LOVE it !!!!!!!!!"
"I really liked this recipe! It was great. You could also use turkey sausage and serve it for breakfast or brunch."
"This was delicious! Makes more like 8 servings or 6 HUGE servings! Great flavor, reheated well and you could easily make a double batch and freeze it! This will become a winter staple!"
"This was a very delicious and filling dish. I used hot enchilada sauce, which gave the food an extra kick. Would highly recommend!"
"Two thumbs up! A really hearty, tasty recipe. Thank you! (and I agree, with an egg for breakfast? Yum!)"
"This recipe was great! My entire family enjoyed it...and it made great leftovers. The next time that I make it I will probably tweek only one thing: I'll add a little extra ground turkey."
"This recipe was easy to make and it tastes great! My husband asked for it with scrambled eggs, wrapped in a tortilla shell. It's the perfect dinner or breakfast!"
