I was about to post this recipe, but you beat me to it. I grew up on this recipe, and as a kid I loved it!! We sliced tomatoes and put them on top during the last 30 minutes of baking, and then put our wedges of cheese casserole into warm flour tortillas with sour cream, guacamole, and salsa. This recipe may be too rich for some adults, but cheese lovers and children alike love it. Thank you for posting it, I am going to make it tonight. I am already thinking of the yummy cheesy bliss that awaits me.....:)
