  1. This recipe was good, not great. I thought it was a little bland. I was easy to put together, but I think it needed something else... some sort of vegetable like peas maybe?
  2. I can't believe I haven't rated this one yet! I've made this numerous times and the whole family love sit. I do add in a small can of chopped mushrooms, my kids love them, and it makes a nice addition to the dish.
  3. My family did not care for this one. I have a family of 8 picky people.
  4. I made it Gluten Free by using the suggestion of Sauted onion instead of onion soup, I decreased the liquid by 1/2 cup to make up for the Progresso Creamy Mushroom soup. I also added about 4oz Velveta Cheese and about 1 tsp Garlic Salt and salt and peppered the meat- oh and I used ground venison. No one knew! It was very quick and easy! I warned the kids that it tasted better than it looked, so have an open mind and they loved it! How can we make it look prettier?
  5. WOW! I was really surprised! My long day started hours before work, 8 hour work day, and I come home exhausted. I don't have much, but I need to use the ground turkey in the fridge TODAY! Found this recipe, and enough scaps in my cupboard to swing it. Onion soup (one oz not two, good enough) rice (last cup regular long grain, 1 cup Jasmine, good enough) cream of soup (nope, I have a can of broccoli cheese, good enough) ground turkey (I actually have 1.25 lbs, good enough) On the stove, sit back, R E L A X!!! 20 mins later, beep beep timer goes off. One large scoop is enough for me, a top of pepper and garlic salt. AND OOOOH! I was really surprised. It was really good. Enough for seconds. And this lengthy review at the end of a long and longer day. Thank you for this pleasant and surprising joy to remind me to smile and enjoy my food.
