“This dish is delicious alone or accompanied by other foods as a side dish. It's very easy and inexpensive to fix and the ingredients are ones almost anyone would have in the pantry. I use Jack cheese or cheddar. For a stronger cheese flavor I get sharp cheddar instead of adding more cheese. The onions are optional. I have family that won't eat anything if they see an onion visible so I mince it, then when this dish is baked it flavors it. They never complain and they love it when I fix this. I usually bake it between 45 minutes to an hour.”
