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.
