    This was great! Very flavorful. I used 1 T dried minced onion instead of fresh. I baked it in a pie pan and it took 40 minutes. I'd make it again. I'll try a cheddar cheese mixture next time and add other vegetables too. Thanks for posting it. Variety is the spice of life! - 2/21/09

  • SO-OOO Good! Made a wonderful, filling meal. I used flax meal instead of flour and the texture was great--very fluffy. Will definitely add to my Favorites list. I also added Chef Meg's pork sausage. - 8/7/11

  • Great base recipe. Added carrots, broccoli, and mushroom to mine, since I had them on hand. Also used different cheese (also to use up what I had on hand), and added a pie crust to it. I like how many options this recipe opens up. Very good. - 10/25/10
