I got this recipe from my wonderful mother-in-law. She makes this recipe every year for the holidays so she has something on hand that is quick and easy (and DELICIOUS) to make for unexpected company. I believe she got this recipe from a neighbor about 40 years ago and I do not know the original origin. Make sure to use Miracle Whip as regular mayonnaise does not give the finished dish that "tang". One thing for sure ... these cocktail/party snacks are ooey, gooey, cheesy and delicious!!
