This recipe was easy and SO good! I used red bell pepper rather than green because that's what I had. Next time I will double recipe and use a larger baking dish so maybe I will have leftovers...Four of us ate every bite! Read More

It was really good! If you're making it expect the sweet potatoes to be softer than if you were making it with normal mashed potatoes. Also I kept it in the oven for 5 mins more than it said to. Read More

My husband and I loved this. It was the first time I made it. I didn't have broth so I used dry bouillon and a cup of water. I used cheese on top but should have let it brown first. I also left it in the oven for 30 minutes. It was quite runny so I will use cornstarch in place of flour and mix it with 1/4 cup water then add it. I just have better luck with with that thickener. We will have this again. Great recipe to use what you already have at home. Read More

Delicious! Kids loved! Used what I had so didn t use green pepper but used onions instead. The rest was all the same except I used gluten free flour. Definitely a new favorite in my book! Read More

Great! I've made it several times. I use it as a base recipie and change things up as I feel in the mood for. It comes out fabulous each time. Today, I added in a few spoons of canned sweet potato soup to the meat, right at the end. It gave it a very interesting flavour! If you're in the mood for doing a tad bit different, sticking to most of the original recipie, you might want to try that! Read More
