I followed the recipe other then I only used 1/2 teaspoon of pepper because I thought 2 teaspoons was too much for us. I used 16 ounces of shredded slaw and it worked out great. I also added a tablespoon of milk only because I had read a few other recipes and thought this one included milk too. Noticed afterwards it didn't. We all enjoyed this.

I love this recipe. I made it exactly the way it states to make it. My husband loved it and couldn't believe it wasn't restaurant take-out. I wouldn't change a thing.
