MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 31, 2013

I made these last night for dinner and they were very good. I remember thinking "This is so warm and homey- perfectly comforting!" while eating them. They go together quickly and cook nicely without falling apart. I served them with mashed potatoes, green beans, and bread and butter.

MY REVIEW

We found this recipe as written to be quite bland. Edible but not worth playing with to find improvements that will make us enjoy it.
