Notes

How to sneak veggies into kids and some adults. Put cheese on it and they will eat it.

This has many variations depending on veggies in season, cheese used, adding diced chicken or ham. I have made it italian style with parmesan adding basil, mexican with pepper-jack cheese and cilantro, used lager instead of wine.....
