I chose this recipe because I was looking for something that I had most of the ingredients for but I have tried recipes like this before and wasn't impressed. The biscuit topping was always tough and tasteless. This biscuit topping was fluffy. I even liked it without the mushroom sauce (which is really more like gravy) but it is good with it also. I have one tip. Make the mushroom sauce the day before and all you have to do is heat it up. And I did change a couple of things for the mushroom sauce. I sliced 8 ozs. of fresh mushrooms and sauteed them in a little butter and olive oil then poured them in with the other ingredients (for the sauce) and used white wine instead of milk or sherry wine. I was quite generous with salt and pepper, but again to taste. Thanks! I'll be making this again.
