My family absolutely LOVED this! I made layers of potatoes, ham, egg slices and sauce 3 times instead of stirring all together. I didn't want to break any egg slices. My kids really loved finding an occassional egg slice. I added a little mustard to the cheese sauce. I'll be making this again and add extra eggs per my kids' request. Thanx!
