This was simple and simply delicious. I actually tripled the recipe and divided it between two 2-cup ramekins for a main dish. I used non-fat milk, but did not sacrifice the butter! Because my ramekins were white, I sprinkled just a tinge of Old Bay on top with panko and parmesan for a little bit of color. Served with crusty french bread and a caesar salad, it was a delicious dinner. I would definitely serve this up again for company!
