Recipe by Julie in TX

This is a good recipe to use when you're having guests. You can serve it with mashed potatoes or noodles. I usually serve it with noodles and seldom have leftovers. From the Good Housekeeping Cookbook.

I've made this recipe a few times. It's a great fancy-looking dish. Sometimes for a twist, I substitute sour cream for the half and half.
