This is bland. I'd prefer a buttered & salted ear of sweet corn and a good baked potato.

Loved this, so easy to make and so good! We used jewel potatoes and sharp white cheddar, but followed directions otherwise.

My 14 year old son made this for dinner the other night. He followed the recipe exactly except for adding in 1lb of cooked beef bacon. It was delicious!! Great comfort food.
