    YUM! It’s a 5-star for me fershure! The seasonings were adjusted slightly…more paprika, a little less white pepper and mustard. I did add some gouda to melt into the sauce, which I think was a fine idea, and since I used a shallow but wide dish, I used more cheese and buttered cracker crumbs to cover the top. I love this and certainly will make it again. Thanks for posting it!

    I chose this recipe for the Make it Healthier challenge, and this turned out absolutely awesome! Definitely a comfort food, even with lower fat adjustments. I only used 1 tablespoon butter and substituted 1/2 teaspoon imitation butter for the melted butter. Also instead of crackers I used a non-fat garlic cracker (Kavli). This probably increased the salt content, but that wasn't my concern. You could use corn flakes too. Instead of whole milk I used 1% milk. I had a horseradish Dijon mustard in the fridge, but I think another type of mustard (other than Dijon) might taste good in this too. Wow, this was good. I think I'll make this again. Thanks *Parsley*!
