If you take this to a pot luck dinner, you'll be overwhelmd by the requests for the recipe. I didn't have crackers so I used crushed potato chips.
Delicious! Loved this. It was great. I used 1 whole package of Ritz crackers and used a lot more butter 1/2 cup when drizzling over them. I also used a whole onion. The nuts on top are so different and unusual but taste yummy. Loved it and so did the family!
Very good dish, and not overly sweet; made as written. Other recipes like this call for 1/2 cup sugar or more versus 1/4 cup for this one. For the ‘1/2 cup cracker crumbs’, used 12 Ritz crackers. The nut topping, with sunflower seeds included, gives this a nice twist from the norm. While using the specified amount of butter, next time might reduce it slightly to say 3 tablespoons. A good choice for a Thanksgiving or Christmas dinner, especially if lots of sweet stuff is already in the planned food choices. Thank you emoon.
I used Splenda instead of sugar, egg whites instead of a whole egg, low fat mayonnaise and cheese to cut he calories and fat. It was delicious 157calories a serving and 10.4 gms of fat.
I loved it so much I am writing a review for first time and adding a picture!!! I used barbeque chips and added pine nuts which was sooo good I made a second batch and used Panko and small cubed ham . This is my new favorite this fall. Sooooo good!
Used panko crumbs, pecans and pumpkin seeds. I think you could use any nuts and seeds. I used two Tbl of dried onion flakes.
