Reviewed Turkey Hashed Browns

Nov 29, 2013 on FoodNetwork.com

Generally I love Ina's recipes. This was the exception that proves the rule. I prepared it exactly as described - only because it was Inas and I thought it was worth trying. We love hashbrowns and onions, and have them occasionally for breakfast. So it was not a total loss. But, the turkey gets totally lost; you can't taste it at all. We love...

This is such a great recipe! And, it's relatively quick, and very easy. We don't really like thick pork chops, so I use pork steaks or regular-slice pork chops (not the very thin breakfast sliced and just adjust the cooking time a little. The buttermilk gives the gravy a great flavor...thanks, Tyler, for a great recipe that can also be very eco"

Absolutely delicious. I made it exactly as Ina prescribed, and it was so good. Even the "I don't care for cauliflower" crew loved it. Thanks, Ina, for another winner!"

Very good. I followed the recipe exactly as written, and will make the following changes next time: I could use about half the chicken; we like lots of the soupy part of soup and there was plenty of flavor without so much chicken. I will cut way back on the carrots; we just prefer fewer. And last, I won't thicken with the tortillas - or maybe "

Robert - you ROCK! My first effort with one of your recipes and with pesto - wasn't sure my not-too-adventurous husband would like it, but I had all the fresh herbs just steps from my kitchen door, so I tried it. We both loved it - it's rich and very filling, and just delicious. I only had one pound of shrimp for two of us so I added 5 or 6 mus"

Years ago, I dined in a little Mexican restaurant on the gulf coast of Texas. I was served a dish called "Mexican Shrimp Cocktail". It was wonderful....served in a tall beer glass with slices of lime and lemon and saltine crackers on the side. I asked the waiter (who spoke no English what made it so good...he tried to tell me (I speak no Spanis"

GREAT recipe! I tried several batter-dipped asparagus recipes, all of them were good, but Guy's was the best. We have an asparagus bed that covers us up with wonderful asparagus every spring and are always searching for good ways to use it...this was a fave!"

Hated the crust. More like a pie crust than a pizza crust. Actual pizza was tasty, but the crust was bad."

Followed the recipe exactly. Dressing is BITTER. Just awful. Something seriously wrong with this recipe; think it may be the sesame oil. Not sure what, but it was terrible."

This is my absolute go-to recipe for meatballs. I make a big ol' batch, freeze most of them, make my favorite sauce and freeze it, and we love it every time. I make them small, I make them big... we love them! Not a great fan of some of Rachel's "fusion-style" recipes, but this one is a winner."

GREAT soup! Here's what I did: Because my husband doesn't think he's eaten if he hasn't had some meat, I browned a pound of good lean stew beef cut in small pieces in a bit of olive oil; poured a container of beef stock over it, and let it simmer while I did the rest of the recipe.I also Added a cup of chopped celery. I put two of the peeled"
