"Found this too dry the first time I made it, but it had promise, so I made it again. The second time, I changed the shredded cheese to Cheez Whiz (it's more authentic that way plus adds more moisture), cooked a clove of garlic with the onions and changed the mayo to sour cream. With the changes, we were much more satisfied with the results. Since I had to make so many changes, I can only give the original recipe 4 stars, but thought the idea of a philly potato ingenius."

"We enjoyed this. I think I will make additional horseradish sauce next time and put some on the potato under the veggie/beef mixture as well as on top. My husband suggested trying cheese sauce instead of grated cheese to give it more moisture as well. But all in all, very good."

"Quick, easy, and filling. I substituted one fresh jalepeno for the bell pepper strips and used thinly sliced round steak in lieu of more expensive deli meat. Sour cream instead of mayo as well. My husband was full and enjoyed the meal. Will be sure to make again."

"This was a super easy recipe. Our two dinner guests raved about the flavors, and they requested the recipe."
