Great for a winter all in one dish meal. I tend to make this when I have leftover Chicken. Although Cheddar is my favorite cheese I would like to try a swiss with this. You could add some crumbled bacon to enhance the flavor of the Cheese. You can experiment with this changing cheeses and or soups. Anyhow I made this tonight and it is gone. My husband and two sons really enjoyed it. I hope you do too.
