    Pure comfort food! Made exactly as written, except I baked it right away (for 25 minutes) and skipped the freezing. Turned out very creamy and tasty!

    i used this recipe as a basic guide. i added dry mustard and cayenne and used a flour/butter rouxe. turned out delicious.

    I made this as directed and we didn't really care for it. The cheese didn't seem as creamy as I was hoping (I guess I was looking for a consistency more like Velveeta). I prepared the dish and cooked it immediately rather than freezing- baked for 15 minutes covered and 10 minutes uncovered.
