perfect. I only had 3 cups of cheese, and it was still perfect. This is one dish my 16 year old daughter insisted she learn to make, and she hates to cook.

Great recipe! I borrowed from JakeFell, reducing the amount of butter and adding sour cream. I used muenster and cheddar cheese and added about a tablespoon of dried parsley. After baking for 45 minutes, I uncovered it and sprinkled crushed wheat Town House crackers and baked uncovered 20 minutes longer. Excellent!!

I added a 4 oz. can of green chilies and 6 crumbled strips of bacon. Also a splash of hot sauce. It turned out amazing!

I used only .6 lb sharp cheddar, cottage cheese w/chive and a few red pepper flakes-it had great flavor!

This was good. I wish it had a little more flavor but it was good. I will probably make this again next week and add some bacon to it.

You definitely need all the cheese this calls for! I thought I could get away with adding less. Four cups sounded like so much! But it really adds to the flavor. I added frozen spinach, thawed and squeezed dry, for nutrition and garlic salt for a bit more flavor.
