This just didn't work for us. Making it, it looked delicous, but the final outcome was a tad disappointing. There wasn't much of a Cheese flavor, it was mostly just the flavor of cream of wheat. The DH eats ANYTHING, and it threw this in the garbage :(. I'm sure alot will like this, but not us, thanks for the recipe though!
