Recipe by Little Bee

This is really good and easy to make! Its a real crowd pleaser too. Take it to your next potluck and you won't have any left. Its also great to make ahead on the weekend for a family weeknight. meal.

Excellent! I've made this twice now. Once for the family and once for a Christmas Party and received good reviews on both occassions. I think the combination of different cheeses make this recipe special. It is one I will make again!
