OMG! Okay, I improvised -- used lox instead of canned salmon and Old Bay spice instead of Alpine and of course ALWAYS butter (NEVER margarine!) For color, used a red pepper instead of green and thick cream instead of evap. milk. This tasted sinful and was just absolutely heavenly!
Basic recipe looked easy to prepare as a side dish. I didn't add the salmon or carrots, but chopped onion instead; also didn't need the extra evap. milk since it was creamy enough. Overall, my family loved them; will prepare often!
