"This recipe is so special I only served it for holidays or special occasions, and then I realized any day is special. This can be made ahead and kept warm in a 250 degree F (120 degree C) oven." — BOJIBLUE

We loved this side dish! There was a lot of flavor and would make a great side to a holiday meal. I did make these ahead and kept them warm in the oven like recommended. This will definitely be made again!
I doubled the recipe for a potluck at work and everyone loved it. I used canned mushrooms and yellow onion. There was no oven available so I just heated it in the microwave right before serving.
I agree with Bonnie about the MSG, you've got to be joking. Here in Australia they've banned it from use for health reasons. I make a similar peas, bacon and mushroom sides, but healthier without the cream and of course that rotten MSG. I did try this, but only the once and that was enough for me. I'll stick to my recipe, thanks.
Did this for Thanksgiving, doubled the recipe, used pearl onions and portobello mushrooms, otherwise followed the recipe. Well received by all, will make again.
