Tasted like pot pie filling. So that's what I did with the leftovers.

I have got to make these as this is something my mother used to make and I loved them.

This is favorite of my family and especially my son. Haven't made this in several years but will surprise my son when he is visiting here in the Fall.

Very good! I did double the onion as suggested by others. Next time I'll also cut the milk by about 1/2 c. to make it thicker. We thought it was a little too runny.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed May. 26, 2012

This recipe was pretty good, but I made some changes. I used steamable frozen peas so they could easily just be cooked in the microwave. I only made half the recipe (becuase it's just my husband & I) but I increased the onions. Also, I felt the cream sauce was a little bland...I added more salt, thyme & sage. When it was all done the dish was flavorful, creamy & sweet from the peas. Will definitely make again.
