  • I use fake/vegetarian Worcestershire sauce
  • Cubed or grated cheese doesn't matter but save approximately 1/4 cup grated cheddar for the topping. You may also use Colby, Mexican grated cheese blend, Monterey Jack, Cheddar, or Asadero. I go by how smooth it is and test taste it.
  • I use Panko bread crumbs but I've heard that Pepperidge Farm Goldfish Cracker Crumbs are tasty, too.
