  1. I made this recipe this morning and I cannot recommend it as written.. it took forever for the sauce to thicken. The finished product is bland–butter would likely perk it up a bit. It makes WAY more than enough to fill 20 muffin cups. I filled 24 and had enough left over for an 8×8 pan. But there was not enough cheese left over at the end for the 8×8 pan.
