    Watch your cream of chicken soup - usually not gluten free! Just make sure “wheat” is not listed in bold at the end of the ingredient list of your canned soup. This recipe was listed as “gluten free”, please be careful if you have celiac disease or are very sensitive to gluten!

    This is a good casserole, nice and rich. I do have to admit that I cut down on the ketchup and brown sugar and used green onions, but other that that followed the recipe. Will be making again!

    Just fair. Omitted the cornflakes & butter. Very sweet. Not sure what flavor the recipe was going for.- Theresa

    The flavors didn't mix.. you had a hashbrown casserole on the bottom, with a sweet meat mixture on the top.. i liked all the layers separately, but they just didn't go together. The meat needs to be spicier or something. Not quite sure what would fix this.

    Too sweet. I lived in New Orleans for 5 years. Not much "Creole" about this. My husband is not a picky eater but he could not even finish his portion. 85% potato; 15% meat. And the onions should have been sauteed with the beef -- too hard.I would rate this 0 stars, if I had that option.

    Reminded my family of sloppy joes on hashbrowns. We will not be making this dish again.

    Excellent! I added 2 lbs. of meat, and changed the potatoes to O'brien style. I also added adobe sauce to the ketchup for a little kick.

    Fabulous rich and hearty meal!! This makes wonderful "comfort food" in cooler weather. My husband and I absolutely loved it :0)

    Instead of using Cornflakes I used French's Fried Onions and I think next time I would cook up the onions before I add them to the potatoes. Pretty good I would make this again.
