    This was good, but I will bake it a bit longer next time. The veggies weren't really cooked- I like a little crunch, but the onions, pepper, and celery were practically raw. Other than that, this was tasty and simple to prepare.

    The recipe calls for Miracle Whip not mayo or salad dressing.
