Good and easy but needs more seasoning to make it pop. I added some of my personal seasoning blend which added just a bit of heat and also some oregano. Add some leftover veggies like green beans or some frozen mixed veggies. Dont skimp on the cheese.

Very delicious Perfect for the wife and i plus a little for lunch the next day

We like this recipe. My husband is usually very picky and he liked it.

Very easy and very good. The only change I made was to add some garlic powder to the meat. Will make it again.

Not great, too soupy, must cook meat and drain completely before adding to onion mix, I added vegetables but still found it bland and the consistency off putting.

I have not made this yet so I cannot rate it.

You did rate it. You gave it a 4 star rating. You mean cannot comment on it yet.

We tried / liked it very much. I added a can of mixed vegetables, under the mash potatoes. One dish, very good.

It was a very good. I added a can of mixed vegetables, under the mashed potatoes. This way, we had a complete meal in one dish.

We were amazed that something this easy could be this good. Had it Monday and my son is asking for it again! This will be one of my "go to" recipes when I am too busy to cook and I am going to make a couple and put them in the freezer. Thanks Mr. Food Kitchen!

Love it...easy to put together & the family wants to have it for dinner every week!

What could be easier? Sounds good.

You can substitute ground turkey and turkey gravy or even left over turkey (after the holidays). I throw in a few sliced mushrooms as well.

If canned or bottled gravy has too much sodium just make your own gravy

I do not like the canned gravey , too much sodium. I will not try.

I made this and it was great! I made it the second time and added hidden valley ranch dressing mix packet to the mashed potatoes, and the cheddar cheese. It came out oooh sooo gooood!

I add a can of corn to the gr.meat and shred cheese on top.
