Adapted from a recipe in Real Simple magazine, this bakes up crunchy and moist.Use the cheddar flavored Flipside crackers for extra cheesy flavor. I make this when I'm making Baked Mac & Cheese, and top it with the leftover crumb mixture too! Steamed broccoli is a perfect compliment to the other two dishes. I used Flipside crackers (Townhouse crackers on one side with pretzel on one side), but plain ol' Ritz, Townhouse or Club crackers will do.
