    I've tried to perfect this fives times and it's just too thick and can still taste the flour. I give up  -  23 Mar 2018


    Came out creamy and perfect for a sauce on a hamburger with carmelized onion!  -  20 Apr 2018  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I poured this over a tater-tot, one-dish supper, which I then topped with bacon bits, chives and a little chipotle-garlic seasoning. This didn't need additional salt in my view, because of the cheese (used Velveeta). It would go great over vegetables, natchos, as mentioned, and as a dip. Easy and versatile recipe!  -  18 Feb 2018  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
