      Glad to know I'm not the only one who secretly scrapes the baked on cheese off a baking sheet and munches on it after making a batch of nachos!! This is a fun and easy appetizer. Pretty darn tasty, too....but I think the Parmesan I used was particularly pungent, so the flavor was more dominant than I would have liked. (Parm lovers will be in heaven, but I have a bit of a love-hate relationship with that particular cheese!) The thyme and walnuts were a very nice touch and I used a good quality aged cheddar. I do intend to try these again, but I will play with the recipe a bit to suit my personal taste....think I'll try substituting Asiago for the Parmesan and, if I'm feeling creative, even play with some different herb and nut combinations. Thank you so much for sharing!

      So easy to make and so delicious: we loved the magic blend of flavours. I'll certainly be making these again, and trying different nut and herb combinations within the one batch. :) Thanks for sharing this yummy recipe.
