Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
I usually skip the butter and add lots more garlic (usually garlic powder) This originally came from Uncle Kenny's Mom and was a staple at all family functions for years! She would make this and top with butter and bake until serving... She made hers much creamier, Dad just likes them on the stiffer side.
