We went crazy over this dish. Comfort food at its best. I think this would be good with chicken also. Thank you so much for sharing it, Sherri35, and also for the lovely review you gave my recipe.
This was delicious! I could not use beef or bouillon. I used a envelope of onion soup mix with a little more milk,added more green pepper,grated carrots,the balance of the recipe and a dash of worcestershire sauce.
