“From Sam Eber's family to Kathleen King, owner of Tate's Bake Shop. I found this in the Tate's Bake Shop cookbook. It can be made and then frozen and reheated. It's very rich and delicious.* I just made this and it was very good. It filled the pyrex to the very top so I put it on a cookie sheet with a lip and that was a good thing because butter had come over the side of the Pyrex and accumulated on the cookie sheet. I would use 1 stick of butter next time. The pyrex didn't need to be greased since there was so much butter in the recipe. I used an electric mixer for the egg/cheese mixture before the noodles were added. This is even good cold.”
