This is excellent! I most loved the rosemary. A very nice combo of flavors. Easy to prepare. Do eat it warm...we were stuffed from dinner & ate it a couple hours later & I think it would have been better warm - the cheese wasn't gooey anymore. ;) I did skip the jam step & it was still excellent. Don't save this for Thanksgiving, though! Thaks, Derf!
