"I just put this in my crockpot and it already smells good. But how in the world are you supposed to get the butter mixture to stick to the turkey thighs? Maybe it was because my hands were warm and the turkey was cold, but I ended up with butter on pretty much everything except the thighs. A little better explanation of that part of the recipe would be very helpful."

"The recipe instructions seemed to be missing a step, so I just mixed all the ingredients (minus the pasta and cheese) together and dumped them in my crock pot. The end result tasted surprisingly fresh -- definitely better than plain jarred sauce. I think my only change would be to use a little more cheese or maybe serve over cheese ravioli. The poultry sausage is good but could use a little more Flavor And Taste. "

"I've made this for my family several times and it's always a big hit. If you're looking for an eggy casserole, you'll probably be disappointed. This is more of an oven-baked pancake. But we like the apple, bacon, and cheese flavors. My only criticism is that it does take a while to prep all the ingredients. And then of course it needs to bake. So if your kids are already pounding their forks on the table, this isn't the recipe to make. On the other hand, if you have the time, this is a very good brunch choice."

"I made this tonight and it went over well with the family. Because some said the flavor was bland, I substituted a few dashes of worcestershire for salt in the meat/mushroom blend. Also added another dash of salt and a few grinds of pepper to the onions and bell peppers while cooking. On the whole, I thought the end result was good. The biscuits were done on top (browned) at 22 mins so I took the dish out of the oven. We discovered they were still a little gooey on the bottom when we cut into everything, but my husband insisted he likes biscuits that way. Oh, and if you're worried about trans fat, just read the labels on the biscuit canisters and pick one that suits you. Several types have zero trans fat and still taste great."

"All of my boys (ages 2, 4, and 43) liked this one -- gobbled it up with no complaints about cleaning their plates. I used my grocery store's meatloaf mix (beef, pork, and veal) rather than regular ground beef for a little more flavor. Also added about half a small bag of frozen corn with the baked beans and BBQ sauce. The corn gave the casserole a nice texture and I like to sneak in a few more veggies wherever I can. We'll definitely add this to our regular dinner rotation."

Definitely kid-friendly. I made this with a tube of refrigerated breadstick dough instead of the biscuits. I also substituted chopped string cheese for the mozzarella -- it worked just fine. I liked monkeylove's suggestion to bake the dough mixture first. I used a greased 8x11 glass dish and left it in the oven for about 30 mins. Then I piled on a bunch of other pizza toppings, added a few dollops of sauce on top, and baked for 10 mins more. The dough was soft, but not at all raw. A nice change of pace from regular flat crust pizza.
