    Yep, this is my go-to. I am so glad you posted it because the copy in my cookbook has been so used I can hardly read it anymore. No tomato though.

    I sub out any cheese I have in my frig for this recipe. Thats why I love it so much-great way to use up excess cheese or cheap cheese-ends from your deli department. Enjoy!!!
