Top Review by Nif_H

My kids really liked all of the cheese in this recipe - that was a great addition! I didn't like the texture because there were way too many breadcrumbs and it was a bit "gummy". After reading the other reviews, I decided to make it in the oven. I cooked it for 45 minutes at 350 F. The cheese stayed in until the last 15 - 20 minutes when it started to leak out. I was able to keep some some of it in and the cheese on top made up for it! Made for 1, 2, 3 tag game. Thanks weekend cooker! :)
