REVIEW:  This was fabulous!  I baked it in a Pyrex dish, 9X13, lightly greased.  Also, I didn’t put any sauce under the skin on the top side.  I wouldn’t have had enough sauce to do that.  It smelled great and tasted really good too.

REVIEW:  This looked great until I added the cream cheese.   Our verdict:  a big NO.  We had sandwiches instead.   I might consider something along this line but with cheddar/monterey jack instead of the cream cheese.  But I’m not in a big hurry to revisit this one.   01/24/09
