  • There were WAY too many green onions, and once they were served, hard to pick out! It does not say how thin to cut the strips- and since they are whole wheat, hard to tell when "golden". Overall, it was alright, but it served very sloppy. More effort than tasted. - 7/29/10

    Because so many ingredients are piled on top of one another there ends up being a lot more in a serving than you would expect. I served it at a big family dinner and I was the one doing the scooping, so I actually counted the number of servings :o)
