    I tried this, kind of, today it was really good, but instead of ground beef I used ground turkey, brown rice instead of white and cream of mushroom instead of cream of chicken, it was really good that way. never thought about doing it in the crockpot though, will try that next time - 8/7/08

    I have made this dish many times. I use ground turkey and whole grain rice. Also you can get fat free cream of chicken soup at Trader Joe's to cut some more calories out of this disk. - 4/23/08

    If you make this in the crock pot, I suggest you wait to add the broccolli till the last hour or so of cooking. Overcooked broccolli from the crockpot tastes awful!

    This recipe sounds yummy! - 12/18/08

    I make something almost identical only using GimmeLean soy ground beef, and Imagine No Chicken Broth, and brown rice (lower glycemic index than white). I also add a little more spice, although if you try it with the Gimme Lean sausage flavor instead of ground beef flavor you don't need extra spice. - 8/6/08

    I have made something similar to this for years, only with 1/4 cup grated parmesan instead of the soup. Delicious either way! - 8/6/08

    We have made this type of recipe for many years and it is the type of recipe that is easy to add what your family likes. We often do much of it in the microwave, so there few dishes to cleanup...it is very good and easy. - 8/6/08

    I would add onions next time. It needed seasoning. I added sea salt with garlic grinder to this one. It was easy to make and very good once I doctored it. I froze the rest of it for later in small portions. - 6/3/08

    I made this recipe, using ground turkey instead of hamburger and added 1 can of chicken broth, dash of seasoning salt, and a package of Lipton Onion Soup. I didn't have cauliflower, but will add this next time. My teenage sons loved it. No leftovers. - 4/28/08

    This was easy to make but I added onion, salt and pepper and used brown rice. Ithink the amount it serves is more like 8 servings. - 3/25/08

    I love this easy recipe! I made this last night using chicken broth instead of water, brown rice instead of white and ground turkey instead of hamburger. I also added some onions, garlic and thyme for additional flavor (and then I forgot the cream soup!). But it was very tasty, easy and filling! - 3/25/08

    Hmmm, I sub. lean ground turkey, added mushrooms, red peppers and green onions, brown rice instead of white and low sodium soup, added sage and rosemary and fresh ground pepper. It was good but I think the serving size is off. - 3/24/08
