 NOTES : From Mimi:  Believe it or not, this was served at a temple dinner one
 Friday night.  It was so good, I asked for the recipe.  Low fat, it’s not,
 but I have had some success using lower fat ingredients such as milk and sour
 cream, though I wouldn't bother with nonfat sour cream.  I also use less
 cheddar than this recipe calls for...or I double everything except the sour
 cream and cheddar.  Whatever works...it’s the best version I've ever eaten.
