    MMMMmmmmmmmmmmmm! Totally loved this dish! I have not had a lot of experience with Gryere Cheese but found this to my liking a lot! And so easy to put together! It is just so creamy and gooey! I could have eaten the whole thing by myself! Thanks for sharing! Made for ZWT5 for Ali Baba Babes! Lindsey, on a side note, my sister (diner524) tells me you are from Scotland! I am so fascinated with Scotland! Our father's family is straight from Scotland. We are members of the Cameron Clan. I finally got to visit Scotland 2 years ago and fell in love!

    OOOOOOOOOOH MY! this is a very rich dish! I love the nutty flavour of Gruyere cheese, this reminds me of a savoury bread pudding. I will make the recipe again and add some fresh mushrooms which have been sauteed in garlic and butter. Yummy, I can taste it already!! Served with a green salad and sliced tomatoes. Another great recipe Lindsey.
