We are big fans of this recipe. It is very quick to throw together, the aroma is fantastic, and it makes a tasty, filling meal. The only quibble I have is that the hash browns don't really form a crust; really, this is more of a potato/cheese casserole than a pie. Next time I may prebake the potatoes, maybe even under the broiler, so that they crisp up a bit or form a crust. Still, this was a good, flavorful recipe. Thanks!
This recipe was "OK." A lot of cheese with very little cheese flavor. Will not be making this again.
