The ultimate comfort food! The good news is that my package of ground beef was over a pound so I doubled the beef mixture and the cheese - more to eat! I also ignored your healthy low fat ingredients and used full fat cheese, milk and whole eggs. The only thing I really changed was to omit the sugar. I think next time, if I use the extra meat and cheese, I will double the egg milk mixture. The results - a big baked sandwich with a crunchy toast top, a cheesey, savory beef filling and an eggy toast bottom. While it was relatively cool in Phoenix today (below 100°F), I couldn't help thinking, what a perfect dish this would have been back in Mass. on a cold winter night. I can picture sittting in front of the fireplace having my "soul" warmed by your "Toasty Cheese Bake". Thank you Amy, for this wonderfull recipe!

Hate to say but this was a bit of a flop for me. There was no creamy eggy toping I expected and i could hardly detect the cheese. It was like ground beef in between two slices of bread. Sorry but not a keeper. Was looking for something much creamier and moist.
