"I made this and did 30 min. on high and 3 hours on low and it turned out great! You don't need the salt either:) I also used a cooking liner.

"If you bake it a total of six (6) hours, it will be like a brick. Please correct the time required. Jeanne Szymanski"

"I have made a dish almost identical to this (uses 2 eggs) in the past; we used ricotta which has about a fourth the sodium of cottage cheese and fresh mozzarella and/or swiss cheese. Fresh mozzarella has a LOT less sodium and swiss seems to be one of the lower of the "regular" cheeses. Besides, that way you don't get the "trans" fats of velveeta. Enjoy!"

"Can something else be used besides Velveeta? Those of us on sodium restricted diets would really like to enjoy some of these wonderful dishes!
