  1. Yum! This was a big hit with my family. I subbed in plain yogurt for the mayonaisse, which made it a little more watery but the extra liquid was absorbed during standing time. This definitely makes the cookbook :)
  2. Another Goodie!! Wanted something different in comfort food tonight, I had all the ingredients, and it was so good. My husband said to tell you it's a 6 star recipe. Best of all I didn't tweak a thing! Had BBQ pork chops with it and what a nice meal. Thanks,Carole in Orlando
  3. Fabulous! I baked it @350 for about 20 minutes after assembling and replaced half the cheddar with parmesan, but otherwise followed the recipe exactly. Definitely a keeper.
  4. WOW! This is excellent. We had it as the main course, so I doubled everything and heated in a casserole dish, but otherwise didn't change anything. It was great! Next time I will be adding extra bacon or maybe diced ham. Thank you.
  5. YUMMY! Made this for my Wed. nite dinner with the crew of 9..along side the STICKY PINEAPPLE RIBS! I doubled everything and used Red Potatoes unpealed ( I hate to peal) and the color was great! I used 1 cup mayo and 1/4 cup sour cream to I cup 1% milk. I layered everything in a 9X13 and poured milk miture over the top and put it in the oven 350 for 1/2 hour...(the last 1/2 hour of the rib baking process.) This allowed time for me to sit and enjoy everyone..with a nice glass of wine and it was all ready together. THESE are really yummy and went over very well with everyone! Gave the recipe out and will save it for a yummy potatoes casserole...soon!


  1. I have been making this for several years. I have also used ham instead of bacon and then added some oil to pan.
