Savory Swiss Cheesecake

READY IN: 1hr 5mins
Recipe by Swan Valley Tammi

I haven't tried this one yet, but it sounds absolutely delicious. Great for a party, but plan ahead as it needs to refrigerate overnight. (prep and cook times do not include fridge time)

A very delicious appetizer! I made it exactly according to the recipe. The herbs are very subtle, and could be tweaked to suit your tastes. I realized it doesn't call for salt or pepper, but it doesn't need it, especially when served with crackers. The only thing I did differently was to serve it warm/room temperature rather then chilled. It was an easy, inexpensive, yet impressive appetizer.
