fantastic, cook at least 40 mins at 400, then a few minutes under broiler. Bake on cookie sheet to get bottom edges brown. Do not use glass pan from micro wave

WOW! This was amazing. I made exactly as written and this turned out perfectly. It comes out of the oven gorgeous and would make a lovely presentation for company. Be sure to spread the mayo mix...

I liked how creamy this was.
