Made this for Spring PAC. I agree with the author this is perfect comfort food for a Sunday afternoon. I followed the recipes exactly and it came out very decadent and as good if not better than I have tasted restaurants! Thanks for posting this awesome recipe!

Made this pretty much as given in the recipe, & the cheddar cheese I used was sharp! This was originally meant entirely for a neighbor couple, but at the last minute we got some company, & I managed to keep 3 servings for here at home! Very nice comfort food, for sure! Thanks for sharing the recipe! [Made & reviewed for one of my adoptees in this Spring's round of Pick A Chef]
