Great way to use left-over salmon or canned salmon! Believe this was one of the winners of a Pillsbury Bakeoff---many, many years ago! Now that there are only two of us, I cut the recipe in half. Over the years I've found that I don't like canned soups so started making my own . . .Cream Soup Substitutes. It's easy and a lot healthier!

Very tasty - if a little more work than I'm wont to go to for a quick lunch. I halved the recipe (2 tblsps of beaten egg) and, as we don't get cream of anything in Greece, sauteed 1 minced stalk of celery in butter until wilted, added flour, and used the celery roux to make up 1 cup of bechamel sauce.
