When I made it I took a test taste, and it was too sweet and orangy, but the next day when I reheated for my lunch, it was delicious. Just took time for flavors to meld.

This was really sweet and I also thought had too much butter. I'd add less maple syrup and butter if I tried this again.

Very good! Not too sweet. My son (22 yrs old) loved them. Easy to make.

Good, but I would use less orange juice next time. It tasted too orange-y.

This is "meatless" but not vegetarian. Note the chicken broth.
