I made the full amount for 3 of us. DH and I took what we wanted and DS finished off the rest with no problem. I used a smaller amount of cheese because it was all I had but I think that it worked just fine with some less. I also used smoked ham in place of the bacon as it was in the fridge and bacon wasn't. 5 star voted from all of us.
