Being a great cook means you can take a recipe, and make it your own with seasonings, or adding whatever you would like. For those who like more seasoned dishes (like me), this recipe is bland. However, it is not a bad recipe. Just season however you wish. I had no cheese, and improvised this dish into a great dinner for my family of six. First, I scaled the recipe to serve 8 so we would have leftovers. I melted the butter, omitted the celery, and sauteed onion in the butter. I added the flour and milk (3 cups), plus I added one cup of leftover gravy made with chicken broth with the milk. The thickening time will take a little longer than five mintues, just be patient. I added the paprika to the mixture (not the top), salt, pepper, onion salt, ham (from the deli), and cubed chicken. I baked for a few minutes to warm (I had made this earlier in the day to serve at dinner), and used no cheese. It was great and everyone was full and happy. The prep time was NOT long, and this dish was super easy. A great base recipe for those creative cooks out there. Good kid friendly dish, too! Thanks so much.
