"A real winner! This was a very easy recipe to follow and prepare. Only adjustment I would recommend is to "make more". The leftovers were just as good as the first day."

"This is simple and delicious and oh so creamy. I threw in some Velveeta cheese cubes instead of the cheddar cheese. Yummy!"

"Oh my goodness, this recipe is delish ! Doubled the sauce and then added 1/2 cup more milk. For cheese try some grated pepper jack along with cheddar, it's not too spicy hot. I always par-boil my potato slices first and saute' the onions, well worth the extra touches. This goes well with a meatloaf or ham, even pork chops or roast, just add a green vege or salad. Double the recipe for left-overs they are even good with scrambled eggs for breaky."
