This is a clone, so I hope its close to the real thing. Great for left over turkey or any meat. Will make a great SUPER BOWL meal with a salad. Ok you can stop drooling and wipe your chin now.

Don't use mushrooms!!! the key is simplicity and the perfect blend of ingredients. I'm usually all for mushrooms but never in a hot brown!!
