    Awesome! Perfect for a rainy night and for a few night’s worth of dinner
    Great flavor. Good way incorporate a lot of veggies, especially if you have little ones. A lot of prep, but tasted great and will make again!

    I gave this 3 stars because the video instructions almost drove me crazy. The pie itself needed a tad more flavor for me. Next time I’ll add more Worcestershire sauce. I didn’t add the mushrooms. Overall it was somewhat easy to make and I’ll definitely be doing it again with some changes.

    Loved it! I added a bit more sour cream and used almond milk instead (because that’s what I had) still turned out GREAT!

    Delicious. I used ground turkey instead of beef, non-dairy butter, non-dairy half-and-half, and gluten-free flour. It was great.

    The definition of comfort food! I doubled the beef broth, tomato paste, and Worcestershire because 1 cup of liquid wasn’t enough. I also dissolved 2 T cornstarch in half & half (in place of flour) to thicken the sauce to gravy consistency at the end of cooking, before topping with potatoes. The consistency and flavor was perfect.
