Following the directions this was good but not fantastic. It definitely needed doctoring up. I added a heaping tablespoon of minced garlic garlic salt onion powder cayenne pepper and mushrooms and it was very tasty! I also substituted the milk with beef broth for less calories. Next time I am thinking of adding a can of diced tomatoes and som Dijon as well. I will be making again with the modifications. Read More

This is okay, but the predominate flavor is just the processed cheese. It needed more flavor--garlic and beef broth or bouillon would be a good start. Read More

Delicious! Used fresh shredded potatoes instead of the canned. Also added a small amount of instant potatoes to thicken a bit. Will definitely make again Read More
