    Instead of French Fried Onions, my wife tops the casserole with tater tots and grated cheese.
    I really enjoy it but like others have said, use your imagination.

    In a pinch I have added 1 can of diced potatoes family says it’s more rounded meal that way. I suppose you could also add rice instead. And yes I add the milk.

      Yes, I use cream of chicken all the time. In fact I just use what I have or just mix them, cream of mushroom, chicken or celery.
