This was a very good and filling recipe. I left out the corn (both creamed corn and corn kernels) and, unfortunately, I realized too late I did not have any Dijorn Mustard, so I used about 1/4 teaspoon dry mustard. I also used a 10 ounce package of sliced mushrooms (which was about 2 cups). Other than that I followed the recipe exactly and it was very good.
