    Sweet Diva's Note:

    This is a casserole my family can't get enough of. It freezes and reheats well - a great make-ahead meal. I usually serve it with garlic bread and a salad.

      The last time I made this, I had some leftover cheese sauce I needed to use up so I threw it in and it was great! Made a creamier casserole that I actually preferred, but since the rest of the family likes both versions equally, I'm just addding this as a note.

      Here's the cheese sauce if you're intereseted:.
    11. 11
      2 Tablespoons butter.
    12. 12
      2 Tablespoons all-purpose flour.
    13. 13
      1 cup milk.
    14. 14
      1/4 teaspoon salt.
    15. 15
      1/8 teaspoon pepper (or to taste).
    16. 16
      1 cup Cheddar cheese.
    17. 17
      1/4 teaspoon dry mustard.
    18. 18

      We liked it! I made it according to the original recipe. Next time I will make it with the addition of the cream sauce as it seemed a bit dry. Made for Potluck, please see my rating system as I rate tougher than most.
