Very good recipe - tasty and easy since you just throw it all together. I left off the crackers and butter (though I'm sure that makes it even better).

I made this for Christmas Eve dinner and everyone raved about it. I subbed shredded cheddar for the Velveeta, and used two cans of cream of mushroom soup, as that's what I had on hand. This one is a keeper!

This was good and very easy to put together. I made a mistake however, and didn't realize it said 1/2 of a 12 ounce box of crackers and did 12 ounces and it was way to thick - but then again that's my fault. Thanks for an easy kid-friendly side dish.
