I thought this was a nice, easy side dish that I would try again. I would definitely add something else to give it a bit more flavor, definitely salt and maybe use a sharp cheese. Thank you for the recipe!

This is very good. I used colby cheese. Next time I will make I will use Pepper Jack cheese. I think that will replace the cayenne pepper. This is a good make ahead recipe. Just bake ten minutes more if this is chilled. If it is chilled, the cayenne flavor is more pronounced. I will make again and again, especially for my 15 year old. He loves spicy or hot food. Thanks for posting!

Never heard of this dish before. It's everything I love in a recipe: easy, quick, and delicious. Versatile, as well; I could serve it as a side dish with anything. Thanks for sharing!
