"Since there are only 2 of us, I divided the recipe. I had a tub of whipped cream cheese, so I substituted with it, and I used heavy cream instead of milk. My husband loved it."

"I thought the recipe was pretty good and had plenty of flavor, although I did make a couple of changes. I only used one (30oz) bag of hash browns, added a little salt, some green peppers and some ham. My husband did not like it all!"

"If I were to make this recipe again, I would definitely add some veggies. As is, it's pretty dry and not very flavorful."
