I kind of understand why this recipe got so many negative reviews here (more than most recipes I've seen, I think). The recipe is quick and easy, and has that comfort-food feel, but it's just a little weird, I think. I made this exactly as written, using 85% lean ground beef, "98% fat free" soup, and the biscuits were 10 buttermilk ones. Also, it took about 17 minutes to get the biscuits to be a bit "golden brown". This made two fairly big dinners for me, and I did gobble it down, but I wouldn't say it's especially tasty. I should note that the advice to soften the cream-cheese and mix it well should really be emphasized. I thought I did a decent job of it, and even mixed the dish some more while baking (just before putting the biscuits on). Even after all that, the finished dish still had little bits of cream cheese visible. I'm not a huge cream-cheese fan, and I wish it'd been fully melted and dispersed throughout the dish. I've only bought refrigerated biscuits a couple of times in my life, and one of the best things about making this was that I discovered a very nice brand of them. This was a slightly interesting recipe, but I don't think I'll be making it again.
