Recipe by Marg (CaymanDesigns)
I made this as part of a housewarming basket for friends and they loved it. (I used all cheddar cheese) It smells wonderful baking too.

I really didn't care much for this recipe. The swiss cheese added an over sharp almost bitter flavor. And the addition of thyme was really out of place. Overall, I give this one a pass.

- 1⁄2 cup shredded swiss cheese
- 1⁄2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
- 2 tablespoons sugar

- 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
- 1⁄2 teaspoon dried thyme
- 1 1⁄2 teaspoons salt
