I substituted Big Cheddar CHEEZ-ITZ for them. I loved this and will surely make it again.

I made this tonight. It had a nice texture and looked beautiful. Very souffle-like. Next time I might add a little salt, however. I eliminated the crumbled cracker crust as we follow a low carb ...

Next time I won't add the crumbs. They were good, but kind overpowered the delicate cheese flavor.
