Mediocre at best. Husband loved it, but kids did not.

My husband and I love this recipe and I am making it again tonight, but I am going to change the type of cheese...Velveeta instead of cheddar since it melts much better

This recipe is absolutely yummy! Even my picky, non-rice eating kids came back for seconds. It has now become a part of our monthly menu.

Turned out wonderful, and very quick to whip up. Will definitely make again.

This was great but I changed it a bit. I used a frozen vegetable mix w/broccoli, cauliflower and carrots in place of the broccoli. I didn't have mushrooms so just did extra veggies. I suggest mixing the soup in with the egg mixture. It never diluted and I had to mix it in by hand. Other than that, it was really good. Great winter comfort food.
