Recipe by Maryland Jim

A friend gave me her mother's old recipe box and this was an newspaper clipping. Made it a couple of weeks ago and it is easy AND good!

Yummy! DH said "Oh no! I hate when you change recipes on me" but he loved this. The extra added ingredients really sets this one apart from our norm. I loved the crunch of the onion. I normally don't like using condensed soup in my food but this seemed to work well. I did cut the recipe in half. Didn't have parsley so used a touch of celery top. This will be our go to recipe from now on. Thanks for posting. Made for PAC Fall 2009 :)
