This was so cheesefully delightful! I also reduced the amounts. I used 1 bag of peas and half a block of cheese and half a cup of mayonnaise. It was so good as it was! Definetely a must keep. Most likely will increase this the next time I go to a potluck party as I had only made this for my family.

You just can't go wrong with a simple recipe like this. I reduced the amounts a lot and did not even measure, just eyeballed the ingredients. I made just enough for one person and really enjoyed it. Just garnished with a little salt and freshly ground pepper and it was ready in a jiffy. Thanks dogsandwoods! Prepared for My-3-Chefs event.
