I like it because you don't need to take long to make it and my 3 yr old loves it.I kind of got it from a neighbor.

Oh my gosh! This was so simple to make and so much more "yummy" as my kiddos put it. I think I had it prepared in 5-8 minutes and popped it in the oven on "warm" (w/ foil on top) while we got in an hour of park time, before it cools down here. When we got back, I threw on the cheese and threw it under the broiler for a minute or two and it was done! My kids loved it! Thanks Smiley Sabrina!
