Similar to lobster Newburg, but with a twist! Very easy to make.

This was super easy to make. Didn't have any peppers the first night I made it so substituted with a bag of frozen peas - still tasted great but can see where the sweetness and color of the red pepper would be nice too. Also served over rice instead of bread so I didn't have to cut up for the toddlers - both kids ate it up in a heart beat. Read More

I thought this was bland and boring. I haven't made anything "Newburg" before so maybe I just don't care for the flavors. If you make this be sure to have all ingredients ready ahead of time...the cooking goes fast. Read More

This was amazingly easy! I will steal components of this recipe for other things -- the sauce was so creamy but not too rich. I served it over rice instead of toast which I think cut the flavor too much. I would add more seasoning next time if I used rice again. Read More

A nice simple meal. I substituted Marsala wine for Sherry. I also added some frozen peas. I would use less salt or none at all next time since the chicken broth had enough salt in it. Read More

This was SO good! I loved the nice subtle yet creamy taste. I added some peas to it but TOTALLY forgot to put in the avocado! I love avocado too. I won't forget next time! I'm excited for leftovers too! Read More

I left off the avocado as I don't like it. Thought it was very good and a bit different. It had a good flavor and I was pleased to discover it didn't make the toast all soggy. However I think this is 3 servings at most. Read More

Excellent recipe. Next time I will leave out the extra salt as it was very salty. The sauce was creamy and flavorful. I used this as a recipe for leftover chicken and it worked out great. Read More

NIX THE SALT! I'm so happy I read the reviews before making this. Can't imagine what having that extra t. of salt tossed in would have done to the taste. This was very "Newburgie"....lol Flavor wise and it went over well with my family. I'm not a "Newburg" fan but will give it a 4 for flavor and ease of making it. I'm going to try switching out the Sherry with white wine next time just for fun. Read More
