Top Review by ElaineAnn

I made half the recipe and used half and half in place of whipping cream to reduce the fat a little (of course I added the butter!) This was easy to put together and I baked it while I baked my oven-fried chicken. Thanks for posting Karen. This is a definite keeper. Made for Bargain Basement Tag Game.
