"Good recipe. I did take into consideration the other reviews that said it was bland and I added a ham shank (I keep a couple in my freezer individually frozen in baggies - I tossed it in frozen). This added really good flavor and the house smelled sooo good throughout the day! I omitted the tomatoes just because I didn't feel like having them! It was a very thick soup (especially the leftovers!), so if you like thinner soup add another can of broth. The leftovers are great with garlic bread - a filling meal all by itself."

"This was a great recipe - very quick and yummy when I have 2 kids hanging on me while I'm trying to get dinner on the table. I used Barilla Plus pasta so it was a little healthier and also used fat free Italian dressing and turkey sausage. The leftovers were good also. My son ate the tomatoes too and he never eats his veggies! I'll definitely make this again."

"Great recipe (perfect with grilled cheese!) I did make some little changes. The store was out of cr. of potato soup, so I used cr. of onion. Also, I had some left over brown rice, so I put in 3/4 cup. I also added chopped celery. When I chopped up the chicken thigh I threw in the bone thinking it would add some more flavor. I also used fat free evap. milk. I'll keep this recipe at my finger tips."

"Very good. I maybe would cook it longer (about 45-50 mins). It seemed the potatoes weren't soft enough. But very tasty and creamy - perfect for a cold night!"

"This recipe was great! It's a good portion for 2 people, with a little bit left over. I used french fried onion rings on top instead of the crackers and it was excellent. A great recipe when you want a "spruced up" veggie side dish. I will definitely keep this in my recipe box."

This was a great recipe. It was nice to jazz up a Hamburger Helper. I have to admit I don't use them very much. I'll definitely keep this recipe handy.

Excellent recipe! I took into consideration some of the reviews and I doubled the Worchestershire sauce and only added about 1/2 cup of the sour cream (which was plenty!!!). It was a great recipe, creamy, perfect!

Sooooo delicious! This is a great recipe - I never thought to use Bisquick in with ground beef or to dip the patties in it before pan-frying the meat. It was a great surprise. I did improvise a little - I used turkey gravy b/c that's what I had on hand. Also I didn't have mushrooms, so I didn't use them! I will definitely make this again.

This is a good bread but it does not match the description that they have written. It's good if you want a white bread with a very subtle sweetness.

This recipe was pretty good. I do prefer something with a little more flavor - perhaps I could add more ginger, soy sauce and sugar next time. It was good, but I'll search for something more flavorful next time...
