    sugarpea's Note:

    This dish is even better reheated the second day and that's saying something. THIS is comfort food. Use it as a side dish or even served cold as an appetizer. From Rozanne Gold, a favorite cookbook author.

      It was delicious. The only thing that I may do differently is to perhaps add an herb to it. Dill may be a good addition.

      This was yummy yummy. I learned an important lesson however... I used regular old havarti, and had a *lot* of oil in the pan. Next time, I'll use low fat cheese. Also, I sprinkled a little nutmeg in with the salt and pepper. Delish!
