MY NOTES AND THOUGHTS:

The original called for real ham and more of each of the cheeses, but I think it's just as creamy with a bit less.

I often make a half-recipe in an 8x8 pan. I find some use for that leftover 1/2 can of soup, LOL.

I've done this in the crockpot and it was ok, but a bit mushy for my tastes. I'll do it in the crock in a pinch, but I prefer it out of the oven.

I saw this recipe posted by Ericandus on the WW boards.
