      yes, deerinheadlights, this is most popular, rich and slightly decadent... you probably don't bring home any leftovers!

      LAS--True, but I've found that the cream of potato gives it a richer flavor, try one can of that and one can cream of mushroom.. mmm...golden mushroom..

      This sounds really good. I love to cook. I would instead add bacon for an extra flavor booster cause i don't really like ham and Cream of Mushroom is always good to be added

      thanks kids, nothing like a little comfort food to get the old arteries clogging, just make a big fruit salad and that will be your justification to also serve

      Excellent recipe! Thanks for sharing! We've had several early morning meetings at work where they have purchased casseroles similar to this from a local place and they are very filling. You just need a little square of it about the size of a piece of birthday cake at kid's party. Good stuff!

      Holy moley! That's a casserole that should serve as breakfast, lunch AND dinner! But if you're having brunch, then the calories don't count (not true, I just made that up). Great recipe.
