A perfect side dish for chicken dishes, or a nice little appetizer. Don't forget some marinara to go with.

Awesome warm homey! Loved it. I cut the pie slices in half to get more crunch per bit and it was great! Read More

Wow the sage is amazing in this! I didn't have smoked Gouda so I used what I had in the fridge (Monterey Jack and Parm) but the sage is the star in this. Will definitely be making this again and again! Read More

I really loved the combination of sage and smoked Gouda. Different but easy to make on a weeknight. It made a good dinner with a big salad. Read More
