  1. Sounds good. I used to make one about like this haven’t made it in a long time. Think I’ll get the stuff this weekend and make it again. :)


  2. In recipe refers to 2/3 cup half- and- half. What is half- and- half.


  3. Half and Half is a pasturised milk product made with half cream and half milk.

    For the Salisbury Steak with Onion Gravy recipe you could use 1/3 cup Cream and 1/3 cup Whole Milk.
