Our whole family loves this easy dinner from the moment my brother- in-law (a chef) introduced it. it was originally called "Coon Cheese Casserole", and called for Cracker Barrels extra sharp cheddar black label cheese. I use Seriously Sharp Hunters Cheese or other xx sharp cheddar. Always a huge hit at pot luck meals.
