    Fantastic! We'll be making this again.We had no basil leaves, so it was omitted this time - still turned out great!

    Excellent recipe. However, I struggle with the crumbled blue cheese. I'm not sure it's entirely necessary.

    This is how I impress my mother in law. Barbecue sauce that I use is famous daves rich and sassy and devils spit. I replace the goat cheese with fetta cheese. Cook time seems a little longer. You will want more than 20. Enjoy!
