    I cooked the recipe for a total of 70 minutes at 375 deg, just like it says, with foil, the food is barely cooked.

    This is so good, I'm not sure I can trust the calorie and fat content listed by! I did have to cook it a bit longer because the veggies were still hard and the meat was a bit pink, but otherwise I followed the recipe. I've always done meatloaf and mashed potatoes, but this is a wonderful alternative. Thanks for sharing your great recipe!

    I love this recipe! The only thing I do different is add bacon to the top and broil it at the end to get the bacon crispy. Thanks Annacia for a great recipe!

    I made it while I was visiting my parents. My mother didn't have a baking pan large enough to fit the meat and the veggies so the veggies were packed. I should have brought a very large pan LOL We omitted the peas cause the only bag she got was with other veggies. We used onions, that we cut in quarters. We didn't have any liquid at the end. So my mother made a quick pepper gravy from Bovril. It was great with it. Thanks Annacia :) Made for 123 hit wonders

    This is very good! I used all lean ground beef and substituted dried breadcrumbs for the quick-cooking oats (personal preference). I also couldn't find small pearl onions, fresh or frozen, so I just used a fresh vidalia onion chopped up. The peas are a nice addition. I don't normally care for peas, but they really are good in this recipe. I did find that I had to bake this longer than the time indicates. I also uncovered it after the first 30 minutes to help it get more brown. Very good and I will make this one again! Made for Photo Tag.
