This is a wonderful side dish! It's crunchy on top and creamy in the center.This won a blue ribbon at county fair and second place in several other fairs! Great side dish for anytime, but usually on our Holidays. It is a much requested Family recipe! As a side dish it makes a great presentation. Add a sprig of parsley and set on table. Children love this one as much as adults!

I think the reason we didn't care for it was totally my fault. I misread the directions and didn't add margarine or cover it. I might give it a second chance, I mean after all it did win a ribbon.

Super easy. We enjoyed it. Will shorten cooking time a bit the next time I make it, but I am chalking that up to my oven. Thanks!

The family loved this one! It truly is a great dish and an easy, quick one. I used the cheddar flavored onion rings and added a couple dashes garlic salt to the mixture before baking. Wonderful taste. A keeper.
