This recipe has been in our family for ages. We take it to just about every get-together...folks always rave about it. I like that it's so simple to prepare.—Eileen Jahn, Detroit, Michigan

"I love this recipe. It's simple but tasty and easy. I make it without the mushroom pieces and I do use a bit of butter and milk in the mashed potatoes."
