Ellen's Story

Found this in the Indianapolis Star, where I work, a while back. I haven't tried it yet, so let me know if you decide to give it a try. It sounds like the ultimate comfort food!

I also made a recipe similar to this one, but mine had chopped green onions and crumbled bacon, and topped with shredded cheddar cheese. It was fantabulous!!!

I made a recipe VERY close to this for Thanksgiving a few years back. I liked it 'cause I could make it a day in advance and bake that day. It was creamy and good!
