I always find the reader reviews helpful and followed the advice on using only one cup of sugar and vanilla in the whipped cream. The dessert was delicious! Also, if you have never made meringue before, look up pictures so you know exactly what you are looking for with "stiff, satiny peaks." As someone else pointed out, it takes longer than you"

These were delicious and easy, but definitely need to be broiled for browning. I added more cheese, not sure that was necessary. Also, I used more garlic and added a lot of pepper. Everyone liked them."

I tried making this a few years ago and it was too dry. After reading the reviews, I made it again yesterday and followed some of the suggestions. It was wonderful. I didn't really measure, but more than doubled the stock, added more celery and onions, a full pound of sausage, some dried sage and thyme."

I followed what some other reviewers did-- used Panko instead of fresh breadcrumbs. I also used basil with the parsley. It was delicious and SOOO great that you could make and assemble the entire dish ahead of time and still come out with something so impressive. Thank you! If it's an Ina recipe, you know it will turn out well!""
