This is delicious. A couple of options are to put velveeta slices on top before cooking, and we eat this with a homemade Russian dressing on top, which i don't expect anyone else to do!

Wow!! This is the recipe I have been using for over twenty years. I also sauté 1/4 cup of finely minced white or yellow onion in the melted butter. I sprinkle smoked paprika on top after cooking. Yes, after cooking.
