I made this yesterday with peas and horseradish/garlic mashed potatoes and everyone enjoyed it! I followed the directions completely and did not change a thing. I will be making these again and I am going to try it with chicken. I think that will taste great.

We so wanted to enjoy this. It looked delicious but I had to alter it up quite a bit. I am not even sure what went wrong, if anything. The flavor began as tasting like lumpy flour with a hint of lemon. I really don't know what I did to make it better. Sorry!
