    Amazing, I’ve made it twice, neither time with the sausage, once I used hot dogs and my kids loved it and the second time I used bacon and it was also amazing.

    This turned out wonderful! Used Kielbasa sausage and plain Monterey Jack cheese and it was great! Followed the rest of the directions exactly. Hubby loved it too!

    I did things a bit differently, just a fly-by- Night deal with what I had plus I'm picky about spices. I had everything except heavy cream so I used cream cheese & reg. hotdogs along with some all spice from the local market. Then I whipped everything together in a big pot on the stove. I'd say it turned out pretty Well 😁😋
