NOTES : From Mimi: Believe it or not, this was served at a temple dinner
one Friday night. It was so good, I asked for the recipe. Low fat, it's
not, but I have had some success using lower fat ingredients such as milk
and sour cream, though I wouldn't bother with nonfat sour cream. I also use
less cheddar than this recipe calls for...or I double everything except the
sour cream and cheddar. Whatever works...it's the best version I've ever
eaten.
