  • I was a little confused. Cheese wasn't listed in the ingredients so I didn't know how much. Then it didn't say when to add the half & half. Tasted pretty good though. Kids loved it. - 11/9/08

    oh oh--so sorry--I used a cup and a half of cubed velveeta cheese--the original recipe called for 1-1/2 c of shredded american cheese. And I added the 1/2 & 1/2 at the same time that I added the milk.

    I want to apologize to everyone--when I tried to convert this recipe to a healthier choice, I left out the calculations and nutritional information for the cheese--it called for 1-1/2 c shredded American cheese--that brings the calories and fat up a whole lot more than orignally reported--sorry.
