- Bake for 10 more minutes.
- Let cool slightly and place in serving bowls.
I made two batches of this for Christmas, and then canned individual servings in small jars. It's sooo yummy and truly addicting! The rosemary and thyme make all the difference, so be sure not to leave it out! It's a perfect tv-watching snack :)
