      Wow...I've been making this for years and my original recipe that I clipped out of Southern Living magazine is literally falling apart and I did a search and here it is! Same exact sons go wild over this! Am making it tonight but for only 2 of us, I've lightened it up with ground turkey and basically cut the recipe in half and I bake in a 9x9x2 inch pan, works great! Will reprint this now and put it in a protective other original one was just taped into my "keeper" 3 ring binder...thanks so much!

      This was good and easy to make, just a little time consuming, but worth it. Made as is, but added extra cheese. I think next time I will make it in a smaller pan and have 3-4 layers. Made for I Reccomend.

      This is the best recipe ever! I've made it so many times including a bridal shower and it went... quick! The sour cream sauce is what makes it! Now I'm handing it out to everyone who asks... And... you can even substitute ground turkey for the burger. A definite keeper!
