This recipe was marginal at best. We love Greek food and feta is a favorite. It sounded wonderful, but both my husband and I thought it fair.

I used only one jar of beef AND I soaked it before cooking, and the dish wasn't quite salty enough for our tastes. I can tell it has a lot of potential, though. Next time, I'll try NOT soaking the one jar of beef. The recipe definitely needs pepper, and I think I'll try adding some fresh parsley next time. We served it over white rice and it was a bit bland, but very tender.

All I can say is WOW! Awesome! My husband who is not a big fan of Italian loved it. I totally skipped the "frying" step for health reasons and you'd never know it. I covered the dish for about 35 mins, then removed the foil and let the cheese brown a little. I also added pepper and fresh parsley to the bread crumb mixture, and used freshly grated parmesan. My only complaint is that there was too much coating leftover that I had to throw away. Next time, I'll adjust the coating amount. Otherwise, BRAVO!

Not worth the time or expense. I'll stick with good ol' meat and red sauce lasagna next time.

I thought this recipe was really good and easy to prepare and I would love to eat it again. However, my husband didn't care for it (darn it) so I guess I won't be making it for myself! I used a 1/2 of a 1 lb. block of Mexican Velveeta for the cheese. It had a very different, interesting flavor. Try it!

Yummy, yummy, yummy! I was at the beach with friends when I made this and everyone loved it. I couldn't find regular french bread, so I bought italian sandwich bread and just ripped it into pieces. Then, as others suggested, poured the egg mixture over the top. It was delicious.

Couldn't be easier, and is delicious. I used a chocolate cookie crust and topped mine with 2 chopped up Reese's cups. YUM!

Baked Potato Soup V

Absolutely delicious. I agree with other posters, though, that it was too thick. I thinned it with one cup of chicken broth, but next time, I think I'll try it with half the roux. I used skim milk and light sour cream, 1/2 the pepper, along with real bacon and the flavors blended beautifully. Can't wait to have it again!

After reading the reviews that stated there wasn't enough sauce, I decided to leave most of the italian dressing in the crockpot and added the soup mixture in with it. I think that was a mistake--it was too tangy. But, I think there's definite potential, so I will try it again, taking out the italian dressing and adding extra chicken broth instead.

My husband declared this one a keeper, too. Next time, I would make a few changes: definitely add more hash browns (at least 4 cups) and increase the milk to 1 cup. I added a generous amount of pepper and some garlic salt, and I added the corn in with the soup/milk mixture and decreased the total cook time to 45 minutes. It was very yummy and filling!

Unreal! I have made this several times making my own adjustments each time, and it's always a winner. Just about any fruit works well, and I buy the cheapest wine possible and it's still great. I always get compliments when I make it and if you use the amount of rum called for in the recipe, look out! It'll sneak up on you!

This dip was excellent! I also an 8 oz block of pepper jack cheese shredded and substituted diced bell peppers for the olives. Brought it to a party and it was a big hit. Thanks for something different!
