This dish is convenient since you prepare it the night before baking. I always serve this when we have overnight guests because there's no morning prep time. I get to visit while it's in the oven.—Elizabeth Link, Charlotte, North Carolina

"Very easy to make. I forgot to leave bread out so had to use it fresh vs. dried cubes and it still turned out great. I substituted ground deer meat that my son took this year, which I am not a huge fan of. However, with these seasonings the dish didn't taste gamey at all. I will make this again for sure."
