This is a GREAT recipe. I make a similar version but I saute some minced onions and a clove of minced garlic in the margarine to add a kick of flavour. To prevent that gritty texture do not add the cheese until the milk is thickened and bubbly. Sometimes I add tuna or chicken to make a casserole - 2/23/10
