      This sounds amazing. My DH will love this. If I tell him Gorgonzola, he’s all in.

      LindaBNB…please let us know how you and your DH like it! And it’s so simple to prepare! You can also substitue an equivalent amount of ham, pork, or turkey if that’s what you have on hand. I developed the recipe to use some leftover grilled chicken, but have since used the other meats. I like the chicken best;-D
