I made this yesterday and it was delicious, however I don’t know how you got 6 servings out of this. Did I need to cut vegetables smaller because I only had 4 servings. You are my go to girl! Thanks!

Hi Stephanie,

The gravy mix can cause that. You can always add the vegetables after 2 hours that way they are not soaking in the gravy as long.

Thanks so much!
