"So incredibly good you will not believe how easy they are to make. A family secret recipe that leaves lots of room for interpretation. We eat these a lot in the summer for dinner with a salad and a loaf of good bread. YUM! But be sure that if adding cooked ingredients, allow them to cool a bit before adding milk and eggs so they don't start to scramble. Eat lukewarm for best flavor or warm."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

My husband love this as a side dish to ham! If you use good quality of cheese you won't get the oily and congealed mess a previous rater mentioned. There are indeed times you need to skip generic products!
This was cheesy to the point of being oily. The oil was bubbling as I pulled it out of the oven and it congealed as it cooled. I would cut the cheese in half, maybe even 1/4 and it would be plenty.
Great recipe. I used it as side dish. Little bit too salty but it's still okay. I find it is good warm or cold but I did not like it as much the next day ( thats just me ). Next time will make the recipe smaller.
Great to make ahead and freeze for later. Bake, cut into squares, place in container or ziploc w/ parchment or wax paper in between layers and freeze
First time I've logged on to review a recipe. I'm giving it a 5! So many times I make things from this site that call for cheese and you can barely taste it. This is right for us cheddar lovers. We really enjoyed it. I did add some mushrooms as the author suggested and it was really good. The only way I can describe it is as if someone took my baked mac and cheese from my childhood and made it into handy squares. Was gone in a flash.
Something else I really liked about it? Didn't have to play around too much with it. Directions were really easy to follow. I guess my take on it is this, if you are heavy duty cheese people leave the amount as written. If you aren't well then, cut down on it. I'm leaving it as is.
These make a great lunch for my toddler. I used 24oz of broccoli because I had two 12oz bags. I also added 8oz of cheese and decided another 8oz would be overkill - I can't imagine it with 16oz! Gut bomb! Sprinkled it with onion powder. I would cut back on the butter next time as the oil from the cheese is enough. After baking it at least 45 mins and letting it cool, I cut it to find the bottom mushy and eggy. Yuck. I inverted the whole thing onto a flat pan and browned the bottom as well.
