  1. I made this in a deep casserole dish and served over asparagus, when I think it would have been better in au gratin dishes or a low oval casserole dish--served as a hot dip with crackers. Excellent, rich flavor. This needs to be made with at least 1 cup of flour. I made it with 1/2 cup and it never set correctly and I had to fix it by adding flour after it had baked. I will make this again for our office holiday luncheon, but I think I will try 1 cup of flour and maybe an egg or two to get the desired consistency. Thanks! This is a keeper.
  2. Gotta tell you, this recipe was delicious! There's a lot of chopping in the prep, but it's worth it in the end. It was a bit too spicy for me so next time I will reduce the cayenne pepper by half. The only other changes I made in an effort to reduce the calories and carbs was to reduce the butter by half, substitute Fat free evaporated milk and Healthy choice cream of mushroom soup, use Jarlsberg Lite cheese, and I made my own breadcrumbs instead of using the canned ones. I'll definitely make this again and again. Thanks, Justmez2!
  3. I tried this recipe this weekend at the camp and it was very good. Light and easy to make. Good job. Thank you. Margie


I've relocated to Nashville from Louisiana lived with family for awhile but in my own place in Hermitage, TN . My mother collected cookbooks and I've continued her passion! My favorite cookbook is from my mom, I picked her brain for all her recipes, before she went to heaven. Had fun deciphering if the handful she showed was a cup, or just enough to cover bottom of pot would be WHAT! I now work at a large hospital in the Reference Lab and have people already drooling over the things they hear I can cook!!!! Love the ocean, walking on the beach, or in the woods and mountains, anything to do with water. Like doing a lot of different crafts for my church, sewing,quilting, traveling and of course COOKING!
