Wow, this was so good, even using lite blue coy cheese and Smart Balance! I used ruby port, since that is what I have in the house. Next time I will at least double the nuts. I tried one with a crumpet and one with a whole wheat English muffin, and the crumpet was far superior. I think if this were a snack you might eat just one, but plan on two if it is for breakfast (great paired with grapes) or to accompany dinner. Decadent and delicious, a real keeper!
