  1. My 4yo liked it, but the rest of us found it pretty bland. Took a lot longer than 1.5 hours…..roughly 4 hours on high!

  2. Whoops – just realised I used Mozarella cheese instead of a tasty cheese, so that probably affected my outcome!

  3. I made this with 1 cup tasty cheese and a half cup of parmesan. Also added bacon and shallots as suggested by Tracy. Really good!
