    Chipped Beef over potato

    Diane Hendrick from Lehigh Acres, FL

    This is an easy and quick meal using Chicken Alfredo, but I tried Souffer's Creamed Chipped Beef over a baked potato and it was much better.

    pretty good

    Cristina from

    I was a little wary of trying the pasta on top of potatoes, but this wasn't bad at all. I added some shredded parmesan and basil. It was really easy to make. I'd never had the Skillet Sensations before - the veggies taste very fresh.

    Absolutely the best

    I did not see this recipe in time to have it for Thanksgiving but I will have it tomorrow night for a side dish for my and my hubby's supper. I can hardly wait. It sounds wonderful.

    Yummy!

    Linda from La Feria Texas

    I pre cooked the bacon first in the micro.. this cuts back on the fat and cooking time.. We like our Asparagus with a snap to it.. Other than that.. followed the recipe to the T... It was a hit with Hubby! Will be doing again..

    EXCELLENT!!!

    Angel from Delaware

    This is the easiest, and yet, most appealing side dish. The flavors blend wonderfully. Exceptionally easy and yet you could proudly serve with company. You've got to try it. This is now a returning side dish in my home. My husband loves it!

    Asparagus

    Helene kingsley from ontario ca

    I tried these for the first time and we all enjoyed them. But next time I do cook them, I'll put them in a drip pan so the asparagus won't sit in the bacon fat.

    Wonderfull!!!

    Karen Whitney from

    This was very easy to make and was excellent! I've never fixed Asparagus before but, was able to make this and it was great with lots of flavor. We'll fix it again and soon. The only thing that I did different from the recipe is I used 12 spears instead of 4 (my spears were really small) and I brushed on some olive oil before baking. What a great dish!! The other thing that I did was to make the Welsh Rarebit from scratch. I used 2 Tbls of butter, 4 oz of shredded sharp cheddar cheese, 1/4 cup beer (Coors Light), salt & pepper to taste. It was good too.

      What a change in the regular shortcake I grow up on the chocolate chips just made it so much better. Only 1 little problem I found in the directions is doesn't say anything about the chocolate chips so I just placed them on top of the whipped topping then the strawberries on top of them.
