This is now one of my favorite spreads. I like it so much better than "cold" spreads that are not always so spreadable. I will be making this often. Thanks!

JUST my kind of cheese recipe Sarah! We BOTH loved this, and made it specially for a sandwich filling for a picnic, although we DID test it first with crackers! I added smoked bacon lardons, light mayonnaise, as we can't get miracle whip in France or the UK some grated Comte cheese, as I was out of Cheddar - but, it was just delectable and was perfect when spread on fresh baguette for our picnic. Made for Recipe Swap in the Aussie Forum. THANKS darlink, Karen xxx PS: I didn't bake this spread this time, but I will bake it next time!
