Reviews for Popular Potluck Casserole
"I've made this before, and wrote "excellent" by it, and after fixing it again last night I'm rating it here. It's delicious....easy and not too time consuming to put together, and there's a good variety of vegetables in it. The one change I make is to use only one pound of ground beef....two is just too much in my opinion, and the cheese adds protein to it as well. I think it tastes even better the next day, if there are any leftovers."
