"I cut this recipe in half for my family of 4 and baked it in an 8x8 square casserole. Made as written I give it 3 stars. We all drizzled it with syrup to bump up the flavor and that really made a difference. I will definitely increase the cinnamon and nutmeg next time. easy to put together and nice to have made the night before."

"I have had better. The only thing that I really like is the pecan and brown sugar topping with the butter drizzled over. That was very good."

"To me it has just ok flavor. A little bland. My kids thought it was good. Unless they request it I don't think I'll make it again."
