My husband remembered this from his childhood and asked me to make it. He says it was a standard potluck item where he grew up.It was delicious, very cheesy but light and delicate in texture. I followed the recipe exactly, except that I used to 7 ounce cans of chiles and I omitted the tomato slices. (My husband says, "The Duke may have liked tomato slices on it, but nobody else makes it that way.") There's a fake version of this, using Bisquick. It's okay, but doughy and dense. There are some recipes which don't call for beating the egg-whites. I remember making one of them years ago; again, the texture suffered.This is the real recipe, and it's well worth the few extra minutes to beat the eggwhites.
So what? Big deal.--Closing lines of Buckaroo Banzai Beyond the 8th Dimension, AND of my childhood mix tapes.

Yum.... anything with cheese and chili's can't be bad!! saving this to try!! Thank you!
With 2 lbs. of cheese, you say it's very cheesy? Who woulda thunk it? LOL.

Some days, I can literally see the testosterone floating in the air around here.
Sounds sooooo good! Thanks for posting it. As soon as I'm able to walk again, I WILL be making this.
Well, now I'm glad I posted the recipe. I almost didn't, because I found so many copies of it online. But heck, maybe that's just proof of how much people like it.I'm sure it's very high in calories and fat, but hey! Almost no carbs, so it's on my diet.
