      I had trouble getting the cheese to melt smoothly into the cream(I used the swiss), it came out a little lumpy no matter what I did(I made sure not to boil it). Also, the sauce was a little thin, maybe because of the cheese. Other than that small problem this dish was a hit. I loved the onions! They added a nice acidic crunch to the dish. The eggs were a nice touch as well. Made for ZWT7.
