Recipe by Mikepd

Great recipe from a friend. I came up with the idea of mushrooms, crumbled bacon or different cheese. Can be used for lunch or dinner.

I tried this one with a slight variation and it is wonderful - I added a variety of cheeses and omited the sour cream and mushrooms since my family doesn't like them. I had first seem this in our local grocery store add but some of the directions were omited so I got on-line to find it. If your family is meat eaters I suggest adding more meat. I put in more carrots and onion than it called for and left out the celery too! But for my mom I made a smaller one and put the celery in and the sour cream - she like it bouth ways. This is easy to make - the chopping, peeling, shredding,etc does take a lot of time but it is well worth it. make extra and freeze it for later.
