Recipe Comments & Reviews

Tasted ok, but the bottom got really soggy
This was delicious. It was easy to prepare and only 20-30 minutes to bake. I would use the recipe again.

Thank You,

This recipe is one of a kind....i have a very creative mind when something like this simple comes along, my mind runs wild. Such as wraping the cheese with ham and making cordon bleu or stuffing it with choped up broccoli, ham and cheese!

We made this for a crowd of 50. It was easy and VERY tasty!! I would recommend it wholeheartedly!!
