I have used this recipe twice for Octoberfest parties. Very good! Plan to make it again this year. I use cheddar cheese only, not Velveeta.

We are from San Antonio which has a lot of German influance in and around surrounding areas. Was given this recipe a few years ago and tried it out for Thanksgiving. It was a hit. Needles to say I had lost the recipe and hubby was asking for me to cook it. So TG I found it here. Printing and saving. Never losing again. Absolute keeper.

If this recipe is to large just cut it in half. It is easy to do!
