Recipe Notes

If you have the desire, go ahead and make two of these, and freeze one for later or for a friend!  To freeze, make as directed, omitting final cheese step.  Cover tightly and freeze.  To cook after freezing, thaw completely, bake covered 30 minutes at 350, then add the final step of cheese and bake 5 more minutes to melt the cheese.
