  1. this sounds really yummy. quick question, with the philly cheese layer, do you melt itand spread it or slice it?

    • Thanks for your visit Sharon.

      I asked Hazel about the philly and she replied:-
      I just spread the philly cheese as much as I can, over the mixture. (It’s not the easiest stage of the recipe!) If it is really firm, I soften it a bit in the microwave, but have never melted it as such. Hope this helps.

      Thanks for your visit. Please pop back and leave a comment if you make this recipe and enjoy it.
