Tip #1

This recipe can be made using a disposable aluminum pan. If using a disposable pan, do not preheat on grill. Combine honey, ketchup, soy sauce and Worcestershire in pan and place directly on hot grill. Continue preparing as directed.

Tip #2

This recipe can also easily be made inside on the stovetop, using the oven to melt the cheese.
