I first served this creamy, rich casserole at our ladies meeting at church. Everyone liked it and many of the ladies wanted the recipe. The original recipe was from a friend, but I changed it a bit to suit our tastes. -Betty Sugg, Akron, New York

"I thought this would make a nice, creamy, comfort food type of side dish. I added a bit of dijon mustard to my dish at the start thinking it might need a bit more flavor. Boy, was I wrong. It had a perfect blend of comfort AND flavor. My husband and I loved it and will definitely make it again."

"Yum! This was a delicious, creamy dish that I'm sure I will make again. I did omit the poppy seeds because I had none on hand but the flavor was still wonderful. The Worcestershire really gives it a nice tang. Easy to prepare, too. It does make a LOT so next time I will either use this as the entree for a meat-free dinner, or halve the recipe."
