"I made this tonight and it was amazing. I used fresh mushrooms and cheddar, because it was what I had on hand. I will try it with the Swiss next time. It's a keeper!"

"Good! Used cheddar cheese instead of swiss (not a big swiss fan) and used onions. Took alot longer to cook and did leave kinda a weird smell in the house, but otherwise yummy!"

"I used Monterey Jack in place of the Swiss, because I am not a huge Swiss fan. I also used fresh mushrooms and onions in place of the shallots. This was very taste and looked fabulous! I will defintely be making again!!"
