This was a pretty easy dish to make! I did add sausage to it as my hubby LOVES dishes with more than one meat. I also had to add some seasoning salt as the cheeses took away from the taste. It tasted great!

This is amazing! I used Havarti cheese with dill and fresh garden tomatoes cut into 1" pieces. My husband really enjoyed it and to even texted me the next day after lunch and said it was great 2nd time around. This will become one we use regularly and even serve for company and/or a meal to take to someone after surgery or a new baby.
