I've written Kraft's recipe details, including their suggestions for brand names. Of course, you can choose your own brands for the ingredients according to your personal preference or budget-(I'd use all store brands except for the VELVEETA!) If you're doing the VELVEETA version and not the shredded cheddar, make sure you use VELVEETA brand! (Generics never taste the same!) Haven't actually made this one yet, but saw it and wanted to make sure it was in my Just a Pinch recipe box since it looked so good! (Maybe breakfast for dinner?)
