Aussie Swap#17: This was a great appy for the get together we had this weekend!! Delicious!!
This made a yummy dinner for us tonight - it was the perfect amount for the three of us... sort of a Greek pizza. I used reduced fat cream cheese and sour cream which didn't seem to affect the texture at all, it baked beautifully. However, I thought the white topping was a bit thick, so next time I'd use maybe half to three-fourths the amount. I think a few calamata olives would be a nice addition (of course I'd add them to anything I can!). Made for 1-2-3 Hit Wonders tag game.
This is a wonderful combo of flavors; added some ham, too. Loved the cream cheese mixture with the smokey cheese. Delicious lunch! Made for Holiday tag Game.
