Recipe Comments & Reviews

I always sprinkle a bit of dill weed, garlic powder and onion powder into the mixture. We usually only have shredded cheese in the fridge, so I'll mix it up with everything else in the bowl before putting on the bread. And toasting the bread is a must - either in a skillet or in the oven. It's worth the effort!
