Anything with Velveeta is so yummy! And evil. The 12x8 inch casserole pan is an old pyrex classic.

GASP! This sounds delicious and the kids would eat it too! They eat anything with cheese, you know.

La Vida Dulce-
True, true! I remember I used to think Velveeta and Cheez Whiz were the same thing...until about 6 months ago when I bought some Cheez Whiz to make some nachos. BLEAH! Me no likee! Velveeta has a MUCH better cheese flavor and consistency to it. I remember eating it as a snack, sliced and served on Saltines when I was in playschool. So simple, yet so satisfying.

And yes, the 12x8 casserole dish adorned many a potluck at church when I was growing up. They usually had something good in them, though, at the time, I remember thinking onions were "yucky." Now I know onions are my friend. LOL!

Terri-
I bet they would! What's not to love (though, personally, I'm not a big mushroom fan)? I thought it sounded really good too! I can just smell it baking and seeing the cheese all bubbly. M-m-m-m! ;)
