One of my faves. A great recipe.

This is very tasty, though it makes a huge recipe. I generally halve it, but leave the amount of chilies and onions the same. It also works great with canned green chilies (I used two small cans of diced green chilies for a halved recipe). I find it is not at all necessary to refrigerate this overnight.

For those who like classic american casserole fare, this is a winner. It';s extremely rich, and the cream is overkill. Use milk or even water instead. Light sour cream is also fine. I subbed out sliced celery for the peas with good results--just be sure to keep lots of veggies in it or it will be intolerably heavy."

Be sure to use white chocolate with cocoa butter as one of the first two ingredients. That's what they mean when they say "better chocolate", although no one actually ever says it! Otherwise you will not be happy with the results. It won't melt well and may separate after cooling. It also won't taste nearly as good. I did not find I needed to refr"

This is sweeter than traditional french onion soup and the onions aren't as tender as they are in traditional versions. But that being said, traditional french onion soup is very time consuming to make. This is a snap and the flavor is really very good. Without the cheese croutons, the soup is very low in calories as well. (I'm pretty sure the nu...

I guess I'm the odd man out here. I found the dip to be bland. I added more pimentos, another teaspoon of salt, and more pepper before it really tasted like anything. I agree with two other reviewers--use the pimento juice and jalapenos would add needed flavor."

Nov 24, 2012 in on

I cannot agree with my fellow reviewers on this recipe. To say that there is too much sugar and butter in this recipe would be a wild understatement. I was like eating sweet potato pie topped with penuche candy, all drenched in melted butter. And this was after I reduced the sugar in the sweet potatoes themselves by 2/3 per the suggestions of oth...

Reviewed Shoofly Pie

Nov 23, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on

The shoefly pies I've had in the past are custard pies. This pie filling was more like a cake than a pie, and had a very unpleasant, dish sponge texture. Plus the addition of baking soda to the mix caused it to buckle and burst in the oven, creating a ugly pie and a messy oven."
