Ours turned out great. We added some Monterey Jack cheese with the parmesan and we've used broccoli or asparagus instead of the red pepper on occasion. Read More

This was okay but I suggest making some modifications. I only baked it for 25 minutes and at 350. I skipped the parsley and added lots of garlic. It ends up a little dry still but perhaps using more broth in the mixture could help. Read More

I had typed in 4 ingredients to see what recipes would pop in and lo and behold this recipe came up. At first I was a bit leary because it wasn't a full 4 stars but I love cooking with Sherry so I decided to give it a try. I followed the recipe exactly except I didn't have Jarlsburg cheese I had a bunch of other cheeses that I mixed for the topping including 4 cheese italian a little mozzarella and a touch of sharp cheddar. My husband and I both loved it. Someone had said it was a little bland but they had skipped the Port wine it totally changes the flavor if you skimp on the Sherry. I will be making this again. Next time for guests. Thank you for posting this recipe. Read More

Not very flavorful. I added quite a bit of garlic and pepper and still very bland and too dry. We threw the majority of it out. Will not make again. Read More

Very easy and tasted great! I didn't have any Sherry so I used a dry white wine instead and it was still yummy. I also used mozzerella instead of the Jarlsberg cheese because it's what I had on hand. Will try it with Jarlsberg next time to see if it made a difference.:) Read More

I used milk instead of cream broccolli instead of mushrooms. I added garlic and garlic salt. I cut baking time to 25 min. It was delicious and low fat! Read More

This is a good recipe. I had left over turkey so that is what I used. I did not have Parmesan and Jarlsberg cheeses so I used Edam instead of Jarlsberg and mozzarella instead of Parmesan. Those were the only substitutions. It was good and comforting my granddaughter added cayenne pepper because it was a little bland for her. Probably would have been better with the Parmesan and Jarlsberg cheeses. Very easy to make and seemed pretty much fool proof. Read More
