"My husband and father-in-law love this! It's a bit time-consuming, but worth the spectacular results. Truly a handsome dish! From one of those Pillsbury mini-magazine things you buy at the supermarket. Please note that you can use leftover mashed potatoes as well, or make homemade if you really hate instant!"

"This was so delicious!!!!!!!!! Next time I will use homemade mashed potatoes, but won't change a single thing else."
"This was very good! Very similar to one that I put on here that I have made for years. I used pre made mashed potatoes and just added some garlic salt and cheese. Very good, fast dinner."
"My family absolutely LOVED this recipe! <br/>I did add bacon into the hamburger, besides on top and used jalapeno ketchup for a bit more spice. Tastes just as good the next day!!"
"Great recipe!!! Used 1lb of hamburger and .5lb bulk pork sausage and zesty seasoned salt in place of garlic salt. It was amazing! My DD happily ate 2 slices and was looking for more."
"It was Fantastic! My Family's onmy complaint was that I didnt make more! Left off the tomato...Next time I think I will add part Guniess Beer to the meat mixture for a little kick.
Thanks for the idea!
"This was an ok dish for us. I also found it a little too salty. I think we'll stick with the Better Homes and Gardens Hamburger Pie recipe. Thanks for posting though! I always enjoy trying different recipes."
"Very good, very easy, and well-liked by the whole family! This is definitely going to be added to the "rotation!" Thanks for a great recipe!"
"Well this certainly didn't last long. Very good comfort food and it didn't take long to prepare."
"We really enjoyed this and the leftovers were great for lunch the next day. I used canned tomatoes and fresh garlic, lots of fresh garlic. Will try again with fresh tomatoes next time. Great dish!"
"Hi! We had this delicious pie last night for dinner. I followed the recipe exactly, except I used diced, canned tomatoes. I wish I would have had fresh. It turned out fantastic! Instead of garlic salt, I also had to use garlic powder. This will be made again, believe me! Thank you for a great recipe! :)"
"This was super easy to put together and the kids and I loved it. Kind of a cross between meatloaf and shepherd's pie. I'll be making it often. Thanks for posting!"
"Very creative & tasty recipe. I don't usually cook with instant potatoes but I was in a time crunch. I made an error to prep of the potatoes, I made them to the box instructions & realized too late there were adjustments. The end result was still ok. I found the dish abit salty so I'll used garlic powder vs salt next time. This dish needs more attention to put together than I originally thought. Its a great looking dish with lots of flavour though, thanks for sharing."
"great recipe and loved by the whole family. i think next time i will use extra lean meat just so there won't be so much grease. my husband loved it and he is very picky. thanks for a good recipe."
"excellent!! the topping was just the right amount of crunchy and the crust held to together. Only change i made is that I cooked the meat for 10 minutes before i put it in the oven just to be sure it cooked"
"This was pretty good. I was a little surprised when I pulled the "crust" out of the oven and it had shrunken down a bunch...but it still tasted great once it was finished. My kids especially really loved it! I agree with people who are saying next time they will use real mashed potatoes and more bacon. I will be doing the same. Thanks for a great recipe!"
"I made this for dinner last night, the only change I made was used homemade mashed potatoes. YUMMY we all enjoyed this will make again for sure. Thanks for the recipe!!!"
"I have been looking for this recipe for 2 years after loosing a box of cookbooks during a move. Thank you so much! This was a favorite in my house, and I can't wait to make it again."
"DS loved this one (minus the tomatoes)! Easy to make with leftover potatoes."
"Great all-in-one meal! I used real mashed potatoes and put 1 can of corn between the meat & potato mixture. I could see how this could be made the day before and put in the oven to re-heat the next day."
