This recipe is a keeper! I absolutely loved it. I didn't have Cajun Seasoning, but I found a great recipe online (I've posted it separately). I didn't have Gruyere so I used what I had on hand, and it was still phenomenal. Recipe courtesy of Family Circle May 2010 and Rebekah Diehl-Shipper of Sterling, Ohio.
