"The potatoes tasted undercooked and there was not enough sauce. It needs some onion and Worcestershire sauce to overcome the very bland taste of this dish."

"I've made this twice, we love it. I use a little less potato...or more meat. The first time I made it there were too many pototoes.

I have passed this onto friends too and they liked it!"

"This was very quick and easy to make, but my family did not like it one bit. It didn't have much flavor at all. I was disappointed because it sounded good, just didn't taste good."
