    Peggisue's Note:

    A slight twist from the others. Use your favorite french onion dip to create a creamier version! This has been in my recipe file for the last two decades and always receives compliments! Sorry Heather, I should have stressed to really rinse the dried beef well to wash away the salty residue, as I always have success.

      I got this recipe for my mom to make for our super bowl party. It turned out way to salty and oniony flavored. I think that if you use the dip OR the onion flakes this may take the severe saltyness away.
