This is really flavorful if you are a blue cheese lover! I would make this more often but I would end up eating too much of it all by myself. Great!

We took it to my Sister-law, for Thanksgiving, they are very fussy about food, They just love it, they ask me to bring it again for Xmas. We where 4 of us, we eat 1/2 and they ask me can they keep it, we all LOVE IT. The recipe is a KEEPER. Sandra E. Smith
