This was good! I reduced the butter to 1/2 cup (1 stick) and thought that was more than enough. I also only needed 1/2 pound of the white American cheese. This was tasty and a great side to our steak salads. I would make this again! Thanks for sharing.:) Read More

This was an unusual recipe. I found a few guests who liked it but by and large it was not popular with most. I think the amount of butter was excessive but that wouldn't have changed the taste just the fat content. I did look this over more than once and hesitated to make it because of the ingredients- but I did and it was not a success. Read More

Unfortunately it didn't have much flavor and we didn't care for the poppyseed mixture or use of American cheese. Read More
