MY REVIEW
Reviewed Sep. 2, 2014

"This dish was absolutely delicious. The only changes I made to the recipe was that I added 1-18 oz jar of chicken gravy, to make a richer sauce and I used real chopped bacon on top. My family is hooked! This will definitely be on our menu very often."

MY REVIEW

"This has been a go-to recipe in my home for years; a frequent request of my husband and even my super picky children gobble this up. I use center cut bacon and reduced fat cheese to cut some of the fat."

"This has become a family favorite. So quick and effortless, you can have your main dish prepared in the time it takes to think of your side dishes! Very good flavor and easy to keep ingredients on hand. We don't use the mushrooms but follow the rest of the ingredients. Delicious!"
