This is exactly as promised, good ole' comfort food! No elegance and show here but everyone will leave the table happy and full (and there likely won't be any left!). For the biscuit base I used Herb Quick Bread and it was ideal here. To trim the fat some I just micro'ed the onion and celery, used skim milk and lower fat soup. If this doesn't make your man happy you might as well give up because nothing will!
Delicious! I added some herbs and some cheese to the sauce, and used a thickened vegetable stock in place of the condensed soup. I think this should be a very versatile recipe, lending itself equally well to chicken, beef, or vegetarian versions. Thanks for sharing your mom's recipe!
