Taken from a clipping some years ago, unfortunately I can't name the magazine. If you're in Australia, it suggests using Tasmanian Heritage brand cheese.

Very tasty and juicy! Ours took a little longer to cook because it was a 5 1/2 pound bird. I wasn't sure when you said to stuff the bird if you meant the cavity (didn't sound like an appetizing place to get the cheese out of) or under the skin, so we went with both! I spread some under the skin and added the herbs, and then I put the 'rindy' bits of the cheese in the cavity with more herbs. Definitely loved it under the skin. I LOVE the directions on putting the pan drippings in the freezer to separate the fat for the gravy! Will be making this one again! Thanks Satyne! Made for ZWT8 Family Picks round.
