    Awesome!! My family loved it! I would just recommend mixing the seasoning and milk mixture before adding shredded cheee.

    Still baking should be ready by 5 o’clock dinner. I’ll rate later if you send me a reminder. I had enough for a 3 QT AND A 4Qt dish. I know from preparing that it will be delicious.

    very good. dont have the fire on too high when you melt the velveeta. i burned it on the bottom of the pot and ended up with only about 1 cup usable cheese sauce, but it still turned out good.

    I am a can't-cook kid, but I've been making this dish for over a year, and it is always a huge hit at potlucks and large get-togethers. I chose not to use the Cajun seasoning because I don't know what that is, but still I rock it every time!!!!!! My sister does catering and just called me for the recipe!
