  • “This was super easy and delicious!I was a little skeptical about using my microwave to cook the casserole, as I normally use it just for heating up leftovers and making popcorn.But the casserole came out perfect, and was ready in just 20 minutes!I cut the onions down to only 1/4 cup, because of the kids.Everyone loved it and my husband even asked me the next day if there was any leftover, which has to be the ultimate compliment!Thanks for sharing!”

  • “This was EXCELLENT!!!So easy to prepare and the taste was just delicious!Thanks.”

  • “Very good and easy to make. Thanks for the recipe!”

  • “This has been a family favorite for over a year! Making it for Easter dinner today 🙂 I do put it in a 9×13 pan at 350 with crushed ritz crackers on top for 20 minutes or so, at my husbands request!”

  • “A family tradition for over 40 years. Since I was serving with ham, I used Cream of Mushroom soup and left out the ham. Also used a Kraft Garlic Cheese roll in place of the Cheez Whiz. MMMMM.”

  • “Very quick and easy and a great flavorful side!I think less butter would be better though, but will definitely make it again and again!!”

  • “I made this for Easter. It was quick and easy and it was a hit with adults and kids!”

  • “This is one of my favorite recipes as well.I make it with cream of mushroom soup and add sliced water chestnuts as well.Another nice change is to substitute French-fried onion rings for regular onions.I put half in the mixture and the other half on top.”

  • “Excellent, quick recipe!I use the large jar of cheez whiz and use it all!I also use dried onions for fresh ones.I haven’t used the ham yet, but this is a delicious recipe the way it is.Fed it to family and friends with rave reviews.”
