International Twists

This versatile casserole can be made many different ways. Give it an Italian spin by replacing the onion powder with 1 teaspoon of Italian seasoning. Also, substitute 1/3 cup of grated Parmesan cheese for the Cheddar.

For a Mexican take, replace the onion powder with 1 teaspoon of chili powder. Use Mexican cheese blend in place of the Cheddar.
