"My kids loved it but since we don't enjoy onions (thus leaving them out), it seemed a little blah and very fattening to me"

"This recipe is one of my favorites and so easy to prepare. I substitute a dash of onion powder for the green onion and add frozen green peas (thawed) instead. I usually serve it with cornbread and a fruit on the side for a complete and delicious weeknight meal. Yum!"

"This is my teenagers' favorite meal! I make it substituting a large clove of garlic (crushed) for the green onions. I saute the garlic in the butter. Also, I've substituted light cream for heavy cream and it tastes just as good! Wonderful easy recipe!"
