I doubled the recipe & as written it came out more like a cheese sauce. I wish I had added an extra 1-2c chicken broth. But it was very tasty! Except the kids wouldn't eat it. :( I used an extremely flavorful Belgian Doppelbock. I also skipped the bread bowls since we don't care for them. Made for Aussie swap 1/10.
