This recipe comes from my Grandma Mollie's kitchen. I work part-time, and we have a 2-year-old, so I appreciate quick and easy recipes like this.—Lisa Le Sage, Wauwatosa, Wisconsin

    Second time I used a can of cream of mushroom soup and a can of cheddar cheese soup. Also added a can of sliced water chestnuts to mixture. Topped w/chow mein noodles before serving rather than the crushed corn flakes. Turned out very good. Adding the extra can of soup kept it from becoming dried out the next day.

    I used cream of chicken soup instead because that was what I had on hand and added 3/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese to mixture. Was very good the first night but was a little dried out when I tried to eat it for lunch the next day.
