"I substituted shredded colby/jack for velveeta, garlic salt for salt, and french fried onions for cornflakes. I omitted diced pimentos and bread. I added 2 cloves garlic, minced. I also only used 6 potatoes. It was fantastic!"

"Very very yummy comfort food! I always make sure the potatoes are very very tender so after it is baked they are gooey goodness. I used the reduced fat velvetta, use garlic salt (for the plain salt) and add garlic pepper. I serve it with Crunchy Baked Tenderloin and it is fab!"

"This just looks so good. I made this today for my daughter's boyfriend's parents. I made it with yukon gold potatoes and it sure smells great. I made them little individual meat loaves to go with it. I hope they like it!"
