    Really impressed with how this came out! Really simple recipe with great results. My family loved more than the old recipe I usually use.

    We really enjoyed this. I only had packets of brown gravy and found that 2 cooked up worked well in this. I was thinking that this would be good to make after Thanksgiving with leftover turkey and turkey gravy. Thanks for the great recipe!

    I was told to replace every meat loaf recipe that I have ever made (and I have made a ton of them) with this recipe for Shepard's pie. They really liked it. I just added a extra cup of veggies and a shot of soy sauce instead of the Worcestershire sauce which I don't care for. I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as my family did. PS.... I am not allowed to make meat loaf ever again. Nobody's recipe!!!

    Definitely a keeper! Hubby had 2 servings, so did daughter. Used up all my leftovers, but had to add some instant potatoes, just didn't have enough of those. And instead of cheese, I topped it with French fried onions. Delish!

    Good quick meal. I added cheddar cheese to the top of the potatoes. I made it for a late lunch, early dinner.

    This was a good quick meal. I added a bit more gravy to the burger mixture and some gravy to the potatoes. We all enjoyed it.

    My family and I tried this meal and yummy. When I asked my family if I should make it again, I received answers of yes before I even finished answering the question.We do like extra gravy so I used 3 cans instead of two to have more gravy.
