These look like you spent a lot of time, but are quick and easy and taste divine. Serve with a salad or fresh veggies for a simple, yet elegant dinner.

I love this recipe from Easy Everyday cooking. I sometimes use provolone in place of the swiss but any other chese would work well in this. Thanks for posting.
