  • This is the only dish that all my family loves; my 3yr old, 1 yr twins, husband & sister. Yet I use only 3tbsp butter, one large onion, 1 1/2 cups milk & 1/3 bread crumbs for a lighter version. - 10/2/11

    Since you had leftovers, it would be hard to tell. But when I make this, I cut the 8X10 into 6 pieces before serving.

  • I got this very same recipe from my daughter via e-mail. I made it with only 1/2 tsp kosher salt accidentally and it was perfect! Loved it - portions are huge so, one can get away eating only 1/3- 1/2 serving as a side dish to cut on the butter fat. - 6/8/09
