Thank you so much!

I made it but it I think we prefer more onion and it was not thick enough for our taste...so I used a little coconut flour, help seeds and then made a chia seed gel with white chia seeds. If you don't eat clean this may all be odd to you but I have all this on hand. I also used a can of creme of celery and 2 cans of condensed milk when I tripled the recipe..and bacon crumbles!

Perhaps you meant 3 tsp salt and not 3 tbsp?
