Very cheesy. Turkey ham works fine in this.

Very enjoyable. I made a half recipe for DH and I and there is enough left for a small lunch! I tried the cut back on the fat so I didn't use any butter but cooked the onion is a tsp of water in the micro till it was soft and transparent, used low fat cheese and skim milk. DH really enjoyed it, and thats saying a lot! The flavors work very well together. Great comfort food that is simple to make. This is something that I'll make again!
