  1. it tasted just ok.
  2. Very, very good. I used cheddar cheese and a narrow casserole dish instead of pie plate. Cooking time had to be increased by 5-7 minutes as a result.
  3. This is a great easy meal to make when you don't have much time. I followed the recipe exactly and find that it was a bit salty for our taste. I will just half the salt next time. Thanks for a great recipe Trisha W.
  4. This was only ok for us. The crust in the middle didn't seem completely cooked to me. I don't think I'll be making this one again.
  5. Thank you for a recipe with veggies in it that my seven-year-old actually loved! I was in shock when she did not pick something out of her dish. I made it up ahead of time and threw it in the oven when we got home. Turned out great! Thank you!


  1. This was very good, DH and myself thoroughly enjoyed this. I used fresh garlic in the hamberger mixture instead of dried garlic, and added canned mushrooms also, I used cheddar cheese instead of the Monterey Jack.... I had the refrigerated cresent dinner roll dough in my freezer, and i was looking for a recipe that I could use it for, and this one was wonderful, I will be making this again..Thanks Trisha for posting:-)
