This is so easy to make but it will give that WOW factor to your dinner. I used potato chips for the topping, but most recipes call for corn flakes. The cheese is so yummy and I get asked to make this for all the family get togethers. I never have leftovers from this, so make sure you get the first helping and hide it in the kitchen!
