I have made this twice and thought this was really tasty after a few modifications. First, I prefer the MSF patties rather than the links for my taste. Second, I thought alot more hot sauce was required for flavor. I am NOT a hot sauce person by ANY means, but it was too bland the first time. My husband used about 1 T. of Gator Sauce brand hot sauce (not terribly hot, but has good flavor). Also, be careful not to overcook lest the cheese harden.

Several friends asked me for the recipe and I will definately make this again!

I served this to 20 non-vegetarians. All were surprised to learn that the dish they loved so much was totally meat-free. Thanks!
