This is a hearty, "warm you up" dish that my grandma used to make. it is one of the few things that i remember her making as she lived far from us and i only saw her once a year. Enjoy.

  5. cover and bake for 25-30 minutes in a preheated 375 degree oven.
  6. One variation of this recipe that i leave out is to add 8 quatered hard boiled eggs to the pan before the soup mixture is poured on.
  7. I am not a big hard boiled egg fan so I omit it.

I thought this was excellent! A fine dish to serve for a "ladies luncheon" or other company. After first consulting with the recipe poster, I did made a few health related substitutions: I used "Healthy Request" cream of celery soup and I used about half of the salt. I also used lowfat cheese. Even with these lower fat/sodium choices, this dish came out so delicious and rich - I can't imagine it tasting any better. My daughter deemed it a perfect 10 stars and had seconds. For the sherry I used a good quality drinking sherry.

Easy to make, but very odd taste combination! The foods included just didn't work well together (and we like everything)! Was too salty - I think garlic powder would work better.
