“Don't remember where I got this recipe but I've had it for about 25 years and love it!!! The salt from the potato chips is all you need for seasoning. Add the cayenne for a bit of zip. It's always a big hit with grilled sirloin steaks.”

I have to agree with Mamabear on this one. I don't pour my soup/milk mixture over the top when making a green bean casserole, so doing it with this recipe just didn't seem right. After cutting my onions I completely mixed them with the liquid and then layered. I hope the three star ratings do not deter anyone from making this, because with the additions of a few seasonings and using the chips it was absolutely delicious. A couple of modifications, and you've got at least a four star recipe. Thanks for a good start!



What's not to love, I thought -- onions, mushrooms and cheese. I didn't have any potato chips and used Ritz crackers instead. The dish tasted like, well, onions. I love onions, but as a complete side dish, it seemed like it needed another flavor to balance it. Perhaps the potato chips would have done that. The soup mixture wasn't liquid enough to soak down through the layers and formed a hot layer of goo on top. I'm interested enough to try this approach again with some tweaks.



I have been making this recipe for years and everytime I fix it folks want the recipe. It easy and oh so good. Plus it goes with about anything. It is a great sidedish.
