This recipe is nothing fancy, but it will be one that your family will ask for time and time again.  You know the one that makes your husband smile when he finds out what’s for dinner or when half your son’s baseball team shows up at your house and they are all starving!   It’s quick, easy, and above all cheesy good!  Again, I am loving Katie Workman’s Cookbook The Mom 100 Cookbook.  This is one of Katie’s recipes that I have made many times.  It is so good and it will be a favorite of yours once you put it on your dinner table.

Good stuff!
