"This was good but I thought there was too much topping. If I make this again,I will cut the topping down by a half. Otherwise, the flavor was very good and even better leftover"

"Always a hit at family potlucks! For the sour cream, I use 1/2 sour cream and half plain yogurt (greek yogurt is a little too tangy); I rarely make the cornflake topping."
