So easy & very tasty, I loved this. I used sour cream & onion potato chips, a blend of different cheeses. Next time I'm going to add cooked & crumbled bacon to the layers.

This was pretty good and definitely different. I used 1 cup of crushed potato chips and 1 cup of Panko breadcrumbs. Panko is a Japanese breadcrumb that is really crispy. I also sprinkled the whole dish with garlic salt, also used sharp cheddar.

Very tasty and a great easy side dish. I brought this to a potluck dinner and was giving out the recipe all night!

This was an interesting change of pace, but I don't know that I'd make it again ("just ok", per Mr. LTH, and "Nothing I'd order if I went somewhere"). Def worth giving a try, but won't become a regular side dish here. TY for an interesting side dish!

What a creative idea! Since it is just the two of us and a baby I halved the recipe. I made one change; instead of using bread crumbs or potato chips, I used cubed, toasted bread with 'I can't believe its not butter' spread on both sides (used a total of four slices). I also added salt, pepper, garlic powder and parsley. I have to admit, that I was pleasantly surprised at the taste--especially since I'm not exactly fond of tomatoes. Hubby enjoyed it too, and our two year old enjoyed the bread and melted cheese. I highly recommend this dish to anyone who likes isn't afraid to try new things.

This was great. I changed the crackers to "vegetable thins" and added a layer of thinly slice zucchini. I also sprinkled italian seasoning in the middle. Turned out fantastic.
