"Made this for a potluck with a few adjustments and they loved it! I used instant potatoes instead of the refrigerated ones and sprinkled top with shredded cheddar cheese. I also cooked the vegetables instead of just heating them."

"I made it with ground turkey because I didn't have any ground beef and my family still loved it!"
