This dish is every bit as decadent and amazing as it sounds though realistically I'm not sure what I could ever serve it with because it is SO rich and heavy. Wonderful but whoa. It's definitely a special occasion-type thing. And I agree with @Laurie in PA about needing a bigger pan: the took about an hour to set - not 40mins - because it was really jam-packed into that 9X12 dish.
I followed the recipe exactly and I have to say this was excellent. I will make this again for sure and will also serve it to company. It looked rather dry when it came time to bake it - I was tempted to add some milk but I decided to follow the instructions all the way - and it came out beautifully moist wonderful flavour and great texture. Can you tell I enjoyed it?! Thank you to the poster for the unique recipe. I will be doing up a beef tenderloin for Christmas - this would be great as a side. The serving size is generous but that means leftovers which are even good cold.
