YUM!! I cut the recipe to 4 servings and my husband and I did a good job of making then vanish! This mix is teriffic! The sauce is buttery and the almond crunch is delicious. I served this with baked salmon. Great! Thanks for another one for my T&T file Karen.

I concur with the other reviews. This was a huge hit! I cut the recipe in half, but the two of us still managed to polish off everything with no leftovers. If I were cooking for 4 and this was the main veggie side dish, I would definitely make the whole recipe and not cut it down.

These were really delicious! I made it pretty much as stated, but used fresh chestnut mushrooms, which I sauteed in the butter along with 2 TBS minced shallots, instead of the onion. I then served it to my bosses with their dinner and they were extremely impressed. It had a lovely taste and I will definitly be making it again for them as well as for my DH at home. Thanks!!
