Beautiful! This solves all my dilemas with recipes that call for cream of mushroom soup, which due to allergies I can not eat, my new go too! I always have all this stuff in the house but do not always have cream soup! Thanks so much! Used it tonight for recipe 153173 Pork chops and gravy!

I used this recipe in a Tator Tot Casserole using ground turkey. I omitted the celery, dill weed and thyme. My 10 year old son actually made this casserole and he enjoyed making it. Great recipe and not nearly as expensive as store bought!!!

It works well if I understood the ingredients correctly- they seem to appear twice in a row, and the recipe title is listed as an ingredient as well. It tasted good and worked well in my casserole.
