    Excellent! Didn't have Creme of Mushroom so used Creme of Asparagus. Mixed the flour, butter in with the milk and soup mix. Added onions when I layered in the ingredients. Topped it with 2 - 3/4" thick pork chops. (The way Mom used to do it!) Drizzled the mix over all the layers and over the chops. Covered with tin foil for 1st hour, uncovered for the next 20 mins. Like I said, excellent!

    I thought this dish was very good as is and there are so many variations that can be made to it. I added ham and onions to mine. I also mixed the butter and flour in with the soup and milk. Much easier to build the recipe that way. Next time I will cover with foil the first hour then uncover for the last 20 minutes.

    I made this the first time but added bacon bits. It was pretty good. The second time I sub'd chedder cheese soup for the mushroom and added a bit of cheddar cheese to the layers. My family demolished it though it would have been better with bacon. I'll make this again and again.

    To add my 2 cents: This dish was well-received at Christmas dinner. I put in too much red pepper, will adjust for next time. Easy to make and delicious!

    PERFECTION!!! I increased sliced potatoes to about 7-8 cups, and milk to 2 cups and left everything else the same.

    I added cream, onions, and salt and pepper. More cayenne for next time!
