I found this on the Cabot web site.Or vary the flavor with Cabot Habanero Cheddar, Tomato Basil Cheddar or Smoky Bacon Cheddar.We have yet to try it but my friend made it and her family enjoyed it very much.Updated: 02/16/2009 - made this with Cabot's Smoky Bacon Cheddar and it was very filling and it was a full meal (at least for me) with a nice salad & just made muffins! ;)
