Recipe Notes

Tips:

  • If you don’t like the mushroom soup, use cream of chicken instead.
  • For a little added interest and texture, I often stir in fresh bean sprouts just before topping with the onion rings.
  • I love green beans and french fried onions. If you need more taste, then add some crumbled bacon to make it memorable.
