  1. I worked for Cracker Barrel as a cook, everything is correct, except the sour cream, theirs does not have sour cream in it.

  2. This was delicious! I made a double batch of it without sour cream (was out of it) and cream of mushroom instead of cream of chicken (was also out of it). Will make again.

  3. This was delicious! I made a double batch of it for Christmas. Made it without sour cream and with cream of mushroom instead of cream of chicken (was out of both). There was very little left! Thanks for the recipe.

  4. I'd like to make this up like the recipe show.but would like to divide it into portions to serve two people. Would I be able to freeze the portions I make up for later?
