Beefy French Onion Potpie
Total TimePrep: 10 min. Bake: 20 min.
Recipe itself seemed a bit dull so I combined all the tips in the other reviews and then some and it turned out great! Added a large bag of mixed frozen veggies to keep it cheap and more filling, salt and pepper to the soup. Also mixed in a roux to make the soup more gravy like with the oil from the meat and some flour into the soup (1 packet of seasoning and 3/4 the recommended water to keep the flavor strong). To the meat while cooking I added a dash of worchestire sauce, onion powder, garlic salt, just a pinch of chilli powder and 2 minced cloves of garlic. Also you most definitely should pre bake the biscuits, I put them in for 5 minutes to prebake and next time I plan to prebake for an additional 2 or so minutes.
Just finished up my version of this recipe- followed the original closely but I seasoned my meat/onion mix heavily with seasoned salt, pepper, garlic, and onion powder. I also dded a frozen bag of mixed veggies (carrot, peas, and corn) right after draining the onion and beef mix. Swapped out shredded mozzarella for havarti squares and pre-cooked my biscuits 5 minutes so the bottoms had a chance to form a crust. Thanks to everyone's suggestions in the comments this was a crowd pleaser! I wish I would have mashed some potatoes to have along side!
I made this for the first time today. I like vegetables, so I added a bag of frozen vegetables with corn, green beans and carrots when adding the soup and boiled all together. I agree that I would add a second can of French onion soup, and I would thicken it when boiling. My biscuits were fine, as I baked them until golden brown. Salt and pepper needs to be added before baking too. It is easy and quick. I will make it again with the changes.

wondering if you add water to the condensed soup or use it straight from the can. thanks

I usually don't follow recipes exactly, but did with this one and was disappointed. As someone else said, the biscuits were not cooked on the bottom and it just tasted so salty. Very disappointing.
used idea and completely adapted it ,chopped steak, LOTS of onions, soup mix, pie crust on bottom--fantastic
This recipe did not turn out well and, in fact, my family sat down at the table to eat and we ended having to throw away the whole thing. The biscuits were raw on the bottom. I read another review regarding making sure the biscuits aren't too big so they will cook through but I don't think it would have mattered because the bottom of the biscuits were also soggy from sitting on top of the juice. Quite frankly, the smell of the soup was very off-putting also. Picture looked great, but a disappointment for me.
I made this and added worchestershire sauce, garlic powder, salt and pepper and I still didn't like it. It smelled delicious but it actually tasted gross. I'm sorry I wasted my time and money to make this.
