I'm glad I read the reviews before making this recipe because after mixing the base ingredients, this dish looked awfully bland. I added a regular-sized can of Italian-seasoned tomatoes and approximately one tablespoon of Italian seasoning. The ground beef I added also had some Italian seasoning (from a previous meal). I skipped the Worcestershire sauce on accident, but it tasted just fine without it. I can see how some felt there was too much bread, but I prefer more bread than meat. If you like more meat, I'd add an additional half to one pound of beef. This tasted great as leftovers, too. I will undoubtedly make this again!
