This is a very basic recipe that I have used for years. Has proven to be the best over various others I have tried.

Thank you for a true recipe. This is what I grew up on. Classic simple ingredients. I use 1/2 milk and 1/2 cream, but honestly, no difference in taste.

One change, but it is simply a personal choice. I add a little thin sliced onion, but that is because my mom did. I made this before and making it again. Sorry I forgot to review the first time.

NO soup NO cheese, it is just right. I use this all the time and add ham, and sometimes pork chops and it turns out great like that and of course perfect as a side dish. Creamy and tender.
Thx for such a nice classic!
