The midwest version I adapted this from uses cheesewhiz. It was very yummy, but very unhealthy and impossible to eat after I became vegan. This was the first recipe I tried for this dish. I plan on trying it with other versions of cheese sauce. Let me know what changes you guys make. I loved to try them too.
