This was a nice recipe to build off of. I used 3/4 lb Velveeta, 4 tbsp margarine & 1 cup of Hormel real crumbled bacon bits. I added 2 cloves of minced garlic, 1 cup of frozen pearl onions, 2 cups of frozen baby peas, 1/2 cup half and half and 1 tbsp of tabasco sauce. I sprinkled paprika over the top. I had to bake it an extra half hour. It turned out very good and creamy. Thanks for the recipe to play with! Made for 1-2-3 Hit Wonders.
This was very good! Directions were very easy to follow with ingredients I had on-hand. The taste was wonderful and cheesy, and the bacon added a real savory dimension to it. It turned out a little too dry, so next time I might try to add some milk or cream to the cheese as it melts to make it "saucier". Also, I may bake this for 45 minutes instead of an hour, because the bottom got a little burned. All in all, this is a good recipe and very easy to prepare!
