thanks, great recipe. I did changes a couple of things to my liking. I substituted fat free mile for evaporated and I used garlic/buttered croutons it topped it off right for me. Ev

I only used 1/2 cup of the cheese (a more subtle flavor) and otherwise made as directed. Also added some black pepper for some zip. This is a good overall recipe and made a tasty side dish for our steak dinner. Thanks for sharing, Laurie.
