"I made two of these (one smoked, one plain) for my 5 person Thanksgiving. It is an incredibly easy recipe and it's quite tasty.I had cored the Gouda, chopped the basil and readied the tomatoes before people came over. When my first guest arrived, I popped the filling in the microwave and it was ready to go in minutes.I'm all about working smarter, not harder, and this recipe fits the bill! Thank you."
