MY REVIEW

"Sorry, made as directed. Dry and stringy cheese. I weighed my ingredients so I know they were right. Too much cheese and/or not enough liquid for all that cheese. Bland. Really not much flavor. Tossed the leftovers. Won't make again."

"This is a great recipe. We have been making this for years, pretty much the same way using low fat milk and we add a good handful or two of peas to it as well."

"This was great, even using reduced fat Colby, fat free milk and margarine! I wasn't nuts over the 3 pan cleanup, but will make again."

"I LOVE this recipe. It has to be one of my all time favorites. The texture is amazing. I always look forward to winter when we have ham so I can use the leftovers to make the ham dices. It is pretty simple to make and everyone who eats it loves it."
