I did not use the mushrooms, although I really wanted to -- dinner is heavy on the mushrooms tonight so I thought it best to leave them out at lunch. I will use them next time! I also didn't use the particular Alpine brand, just what I bought at the supermarket. I don't think the brand matters, as these were superb! Very easy to make and the taste was quite delicious! DS particularly liked them and asked that I make them again. I also didn't broil, as I have a gas oven -- so I just shot the heat way up and that worked just fine.

This was tasty however the cheese stuck to the roof of my mouth *G* I think maybe i will use my sandwich maker and just make it a toasted sandwich instead of an open faced sandwich
