WOW! This was a really great recipe! Thank you! I was worried that my 4 and 6 year old wouldn't eat it but they went for seconds. I followed the recipe exactly. I used Chardonnay and an Amish Swiss cheese. I also used an organic heavy cream and thought it would be too much but it was just perfect. I can't wait to make it again! I didn't put the green onions on top in fear my kids would say "yuck" and not eat but the shallots were perfect and it didn't even need the scallions.
