This was very good. I used 1/2 cup whole milk, and 2 1/2 half and half. Tillamook extra sharp cheddar and Comte' cheese. Rich and delicious. I think some cayenne or hot sauce next time would be good. Easy to make and easy to bake! I use buttered Panko Crumbs on top. 1/4 cup.

Great recipe - comfort food at its best. Even better the next day. I used fat-free half and half, and otherwise followed the recipe.
