This American classic dish is traditionally made with canned cream of mushroom soup. But if you focus on healthy eating, you know how bad canned soups can be. So I don’t use that in the recipe below, and it’s every bit as good. In the classic version, most folks will crush ritz crackers and sprinkle them over the top. Some folks also use potato chips, but that’s not going to happen here. (Though it could if you don’t mind it). Get this recipe!
