We made this for dinner and it is delicious! I put frozen peas in it as well. Awesome!

Made this on a cold winter day...not very good. Followed directions but it lacked flavor. My husband grabbed the pepper and I did not feel it was worth the effort.

Great Recipe. Easy to modify to suit you tastes and still works out. I halved the mayo and used part sour cream. I exchanged Panko for the corn flakes and carrots for the celery. The carrots didn't cook all the way which gave a nice crunch in each bite. I also recommend adding some seasoning. Garlic and Herb worked good for me. Leftover are good too. I'll use this again!

I altered the recipe somewhat, we are not big fans of celery, so I left it out. I did not have the lemon juice or corn flakes so that got left out too. I did however top with a pound of cooked bacon. My family wants it again!!!
