High maintenance recipe! "Mushrooms" in the title but not in the ingredients?!! Had to use canned mushrooms because my grocery list didn't have fresh ones. There was a lot of milk per butter/flour ratio. I worked hard on my own to make this palatable because DH liked it just fine! Thanks, Dienia! Perhaps this recipe needs some updating?!
