MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 20, 2014

"I've made this recipe for years. My grown children are all vegetarian, so we leave out the ham and add a can of chopped green chiles. One of them hates mushrooms, so we leave those out. It's a wonderful dish, and making it ahead really helps."

MY REVIEW

"This was so good! Next time I'm going to put down a layer of hashbrown potatoes first, just because there is so much sauce, I think it could handle another layer."
