  1. If you have troubles adding the sour cream/cream cheese mixture trying using a pastry bag. You can also put the mixture in a plastic bag and clip the corner off so you can evenly squirt the mixture around.
  2. darlene also had this recipe its very good
  3. We enjoyed this casserole. I agree with JohnsCutie that it took a while to assemble, and the cream cheese mixture is a little tricky to work with. I even mixed my cream cheese and sour cream with an electric mixer to get a really smooth consistency, but ended up just placing blobs of it over as evenly as I could. I reduced the amounts of cream cheese and sour cream, and my family felt the casserole was still a bit dairy-heavy. I also used just 1 lb. of meat, and that was plenty meaty for us. The taste was comforting, and went nicely with garlic bread.
  4. This casserole is OUTSTANDING! The taste just can't be beat. The cream cheese, sour cream and onion mixture is the key to making this casserole just an incredible taste sensation. It tooke me a while to get it all together, and I did have trouble spreading the cream cheese mixture because it isn't like a liquid. But it was worth every minute of work, and I will definately make this again!
