These are tasty little treats and easy to make. I don't put in the crisp rice cereal though, but i think that tastes better. I wasn't sure, however, if the butter should be melted or soft. I've made this recipe several times, and I found it comes together much better when the butter is melted.
I found the prepartion to be simple and easy. However, like many other people, I found the cooking time to be completely off! After cooking for the specified time, the potatoes had barely cooked. I ended up having to cook the potatoes for at least another hour. Other problems: there wasn't enough cheese and I wasn't sure whether to cover the dish or not. When I finally was able to eat the dish, I didn't think it tasted very good. A suggestion to anyone else who is thnking about cooking this dish, cook it covered with tin foil. Also, use shredded cheese of your choice. The cheese will melt more evenly. And if you want a little more flavor, add some cubed ham.
Very simple and easy to make. I added a touch of oregano, oninon powder, and parsley just to add some extra flavor and it was delicious! I will definitely make this again!
