Cheese lover, thats what I am and I enjoyed this. Made two minor changes, can not buy Monterey cheese in the Netherlands, I used a Gouda with sambal (chili), that gave it a nice kick, the cheese melted beautifully. I used a small egg and that was enough. I will certainly make this again for the two of us, it won't be any problem to double this recipe.
