My mother made this dish often when I was a kid. Please keep in mind that my mother rarely added many spices to her recipes because my weirdo brother likes food bland and I'm posting this recipe exactly as she made it. Add whatever you like to this. I used Cavendar's Greek seasoning recently which was good. I've also used sage, black pepper and thyme. I think the Velveeta makes it salty enough but that's just my opinion.
