Judy, it would probably be great with Cheddar. What I HAVE to throw in there though, from experience in cheese sauce making is to get that heat nice and low if you use cheddar, I find cheddar sauces break SO easily or become grainy. My trick thus far is either to melt it as low as possible, or not use cheddar LOL!!!!

I've been thinking about this dish since I saw it here, I am thinking about adding it to next week's menu.

oh, high quality cheese, I would say, too Judy. Maybe fresh off the block rather than the pre shredded that has the powdery coating....

I hope it's as good as it sounds ladies - good luck with it! I'm thinking lots of different cheeses would be good with this Judy! Luckily for you that's not a problem!!!
