it says mustard in the instructions but not in the ingredients…
and the carbs are listed as 1 AND as 11.

the carbs could be right. mayonnaise (which is really just egg and soy oil whipped together with a bit of vinegar, you can make your own), should be very low carb-even one cup of the stuff. cheese should have 0 carbs. I've made a similar recipe to this and love it—very yum and yum. I used mixed vegetables, 2 cups, green beens, 2 cups, 1 cup of mayonnaise AND 1 cup of sour cream and 1 small onion chopped. mix together and microwave. my family thinks it's a bit rich. i say yum.

Says that it serves 1. If that's the case the carbs are very wrong. Mayonnaise has 1 carb per tablespoon and there are 16 tablespoons in the cup called for. This doesn't include the cheese, etc. Could servings be wrong?
